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.

2013 will be even better for secondary education

Graduation

During 2012, all our children that we gave secondary education scholarships to passed the year and will advance to the next level in 2013. We will hand out the next round of scholarships in January 2013 for the whole year, which will cover many items they need to complete the whole year.

Although more exciting than that, we are currently in the midst of paperwork to legalise our very own secondary school, whereby we will pay for our own teachers to give the secondary classes to the children, without them having to go to another school. By paying for teachers, we can reachout to even more children desperate to further their education and thanks to donors, past present and future, we can raise the funds necessary to cover teacher salaries in years to come.

Many thanks for all your support, please get involved in our Christmas Appeal, and bring on 2013, a great year for everyone

cheers

2012 draws to a close, bring on 2013

As 2012 draws to a close, over 100 children will be glad that the year is over, the finals exams finished, the hard study completed and will be able to look forward to 2013, when another year of secondary education awaits them; something they would never have had the opportunity to complete without the generous and kind donations for our secondary school.

We fund 4 secondary school teachers, who themsleves impart all the classes to these amazing teenagers, whose ages range between 12 and 20, eager to get the chance to better their chances of employment with further education. It is our wish, funding permitting, to add a further three grades of college education, on top of the secondary education we already give and thanks to you, generous donors and our Christmas Appeal, hopefully this will become reality in 2013.

Happy Holidays to you all, thanks for your ever-present support and let's make 2013 a year to remember in Honduras. Cheers!

Cows equal education in 2012 and 2013!

In our projects in Ecuador in 2012, both primary and secondary education have been a huge success, especially with Plan Moo, whereby we buy a cow for a family, and the proceeds pay for most of the costs incurred with secondary education. It has been a huge success, and funds-permitting, we plan to purchase a small herd over the coming months to satiate the need for further students moving to secondary school and also to help pay for our current local teachers we employ, thanks to donations.

We also hope to be able to feed all our children a hot meal each day, coupled with a piece of fruit, thanks to our on-going Christmas Appeal. The strides the children have made in their educational process this year have been long ones, and we strive to lengthen them even further in 2013; by employing more local teachers to cut-down the class to teacher ratio is a burden we must overcome.

Thanks to all our past, present and future donors, together, as a team, we can provide unequalled education for these communities over the coming months and years. Happy Holidays to you all.

cheers
