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.

End of the School Year

We are now drawing to the end of this year's offical cycle, with the children finishing off their final exams. The preliminary results look incredible with many marks in the high 80´s and 90´s which is amazing! This year has been a landmark year, as we move from volunteer-led teaching, to the hiring of local teachers, most of whom came through the ranks in our school over the past ten years, which just shows how well the education program is progressing, and becoming sustainable which is our overall aim! With the school now fully official in Itzapa and plans to make Santa María official in 2014, the future is looking very bright for the children in Guatemala.

Thank you once again to all of your generous donations which help us to make these fantastic differences, you can clearly see what a difference they are making to the lives of these children when they are young, providing them with the education & ability to come back to teach in the schools when they have grown up!

Updates!

For the past three months the children's education has been affected by country-wide teacher strikes, though we have still managed to get in and carry on teaching, despite this hindrance! We continue with the food program and the children receive their utensils that they need for enhanced learning. Our local teachers we employ are obviously not involved in the strikes so continue to work as normal.

We are moving towards the end of the year which means the final exams and we are confident that most children will pass onto the next grade in 2013. Those that finish primary school will receive their schoilarships for secondary school and this, coupled with Plan Imersion, whereby we promote the opportunities these children can have in Arequipa.

The future is looking bright, thanks to all the generous donors!

Progress for the Next Few Months

Thanks to the incredible generosity of a private donor, matching funds up to $2000 have been pledged to our Old People's Program, which has suffered a little this year with funding. With this generosity, we are lucky enough to be able to put the program back on track for the next few months which is fantastic, as well as the food parcels which are so important, especially as it looks like crops will fail for a third year in a row, will be started again to give them the basics that they need.

Many thanks once again to any donations, it is obvious to see the difference that they can make!
