Fly The Phoenix

Fly the Phoenix believes that education, as well as daily food, are basic human rights. In order to combat the imbalances of these rights, we are creating sustainable, 25-year cycle, educational community programs. These are funded by our local income-initiatives, challenges and international donations through our registered charity, Fly The Phoenix.

Cows and potatoes means sustainable education 2013

Children learning
Children learning

We havn't stopped in our communities in Ecuador, with just two days off over Christmas, the children have been in school in both primary and secondary. Our funded teachers are doing especially well, imparting their knowledge to the little ones. Our secondary school kids are equally doing well, sponsored though further education through Plan Moo, whereby the income from milk helps cover the costs of their education.

This year, your very kind donations will be going towards the salaries of our local teachers who give classes to the children. We also pay a local teacher to give computing lessons. By investing in local talent, knowledge and qualified teachers, the projects become more sustainable as reliance from afar lessens over the years. Obviously donations are needed to pay for their salaries, though the very presence of local employment is a huge plus.

We will also be investing in Plan Moo (described above) and Plan Papa, which is investing in potato crops and local employment which moves towards our sustainability model; by investing in income-generating sustainable plans now, in the future income will be generated for the schools to help pay the monthly costs. Plan Ironwoman will continue to be invested in, which involves iron-rich vegetable and herb gardens for pre and post-natal mothers to counteract the sad effects of malnutrition.

Finally, we will also be running charity challenges in Ecuador, so if you want to come down, see where your money is going, lend a hand and get involved in a charity challenge, please do email us on sarah@thephoenixprojects.org and have a look at the website on www.thephoenixprojects.org

Many thanks for making 2013 a special year, in the past, present and indeed future!

cheers

Kinder, primary and secondary education in 2013

Learning the old-fashioned way!
Learning the old-fashioned way!

February 14th 2013 is upon us, quicker I think than we all imagined - the day the kids return to school for kinder, primary and secondary with us on The Phoenix Projects, and they can't wait. The classrooms are being prepared, planning sessions are being undertaken to make 2013 the best year so far for our education projects in Nicaragua.

This year, your very kind donations will be going towards the salaries of our local eight teachers who give classes to the kinder children and reinforcement sessions for primary and secondary. We are also bringing in a local sports teacher, as well as a local English teacher, to prove that anything is possible in the communities. By investing in local talent, knowledge and qualified teachers, the projects become more sustainable as reliance from afar lessens over the years. Obviously donations are needed to pay for their salaries, though the very presence of local employment is a huge plus.

We will also be investing in Plan Chicken, which moves towards our sustainability model, by investing in income-generating sustainable plans and in the future, will bring in income for the schools to help pay the monthly costs. Eggas and meat which come from chickens can be used in the school meals and also sold to bring income into the school.

Finally, we will also be running charity challenges in Nicaragua, so if you want to come down, see where your money is going, lend a hand and get involved in a charity challenge, please do email us on sarah@thephoenixprojects.org and have a look at the website on www.thephoenixprojects.org

Many thanks for making 2013 a special year, in the past, present and indeed future!
