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.

Holiday Season Appeal for Nicaragua

Daily hot food in Nicaragua
Daily hot food in Nicaragua

During this holiday season, including Thanksgiving, Christmas and other holidays, we have launched our Food and Fruit appeal to raise funds for all our children in Nicaragua to receive daily hot food and fresh fruit in 2013. Learning on an empty stomach is not possible, the concentration levels fall and nothing goes in. Our education projects depend on the child being fit and ready to learn, hence we provide daily food and fruit for them. During this season, spare a thought for those less-fortunate, and thanks so much in advance for your generosity during which is a period of giving thanks!

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
