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.

Further Education Plans

We are coming to the end of the academic year in Honduras and our 1st grade students have come on leaps and bounds throughout the year which is fantastic news.

Our secondary school is coming to the end of its fourth year and we are hoping to open a college in the same community in 2013. Children in remote rural areas in Honduras have little or no chance to attend further education institutions, which are only available in urban areas. By opening a college, this will mean that those teenagers finishing at our secondary school can choose to further their education, something they all want to do.

These plans are dependent on the support and funds provided by our donors and so thank you for continuing to support our project in Honduras, near Copan. Over the coming years, this program will provide accessible secondary education to hundreds of indigenous children in the area.

A New Year and New Teachers

The new school year is fully underway and soon to be coming into its second month! The new term has not been without some changes however; a new national schedule for the year has been implemented in Ecuador, with school terms being different lengths for this year. The team are busy adapting and coming to terms with it all!

We have also started employing local teachers for the 1st grade and computer classes, which is a great step forward! This could only have been done though the continuous support and generous funding from donors. These teachers will help show the children in the communities that good studies leads successfully to good employment, of which becoming a teacher is seen as a very good job! Having local staff will also foster strong communities and ensure the indigenous popluations are not swallowed up by development and ruralisation.

Thank you for continuing to support the communities in Ecuador

New Local Teachers and Schools

The legalisation of our two primary schools is going well and paperwork is still with the relevant authorities. Hopefully, this will be completed soon and the doors will be open to our very own schools in Nicaragua in 2013.

With our original aims being to add to our five local teachers, we are happy to report we now employ seven local teachers in our legal pre-schools and primary school in the two rural communities we work in round Esteli. This is great news and will provide countless benefits to the students in the communities, hopefully by improving their grades even more, and to provide more one-to-one attention.

Donations are of paramount importance to keep these local teachers employed and so we are very grateful to our donors who continue to support the projects and help us to give an excellent education to the 200 children we teach every day.

Thank you
