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 firstname.lastname@example.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!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, closely followed by Christmas and other holidays, and then we are into 2013, another year of education for our children in Ecuador. This holiday season, we have launched our Holiday Appeal to raise funds to provide daily hot food and fruit to all of our children in our projects. With an empty stomach, learning is very difficult at the best of times; with limited teachers it is even harder, hence we provide daily hot food and fresh fruit daily, to increase the children's chances of attaining excellent grades and move further in their scholastic life, giving them more opportunity of employment later on. This season, please help us to give the best for our kids in Ecuador in 2013! Thanks
