Our three schools in Peru opened their doors for the new school year last week and all is running very smoothly. This year, our focus is on welcoming our new children to the school and preparing our oldest for secondary school in 2014.
We also want to start Plan Immersion, giving the older kids the opportunity to trial different jobs and choose what they want to do in their future. This helps them to focus their studies and drive and increases their chances of finishing education.
All of this can be done thanks to our generous donations so please, consider a donation today and let us benefit from a further 30% on top of your donation COMPLETELY FREE!
Don't delay, donate now!
2013 is upon us, quicker I think than we all imagined, although not quick enough for the kids, eager for the new term to start in March. Though we havn't stopped, we have vacation classes for those kids who need that little bit extra, to prepare them for the new school year.
This year, your very kind donations will be going towards the salaries of our local teachers and will also be helping our new Plan Imersion, a scheme which allow secondary students to get a feel of what jobs are available in the future in Arequipa. From where they are from, the Pueblos Jovenes in the desert, they know very little of what is on offer, so we will bring Arequipa to them, have open days with various members of industry to come and talk about what is on offer.
We will also be investing in Plan Chacra, which moves towards our sustainability model, by investing in income-generating sustainable plans, including agriculture and livestock, which in the future, will bring in income for the schools.
Finally, we will also be running various charity challenges in Perú, 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!
In this season of giving thanks, sharing, giving and receiving, we have launched out Holiday Appeal to raise funds for all our children in our projects in Perú, giving them a daily piece of fruit and hot food, to battle malnutrition and also help them study better; learning on an empty stomach is difficult. We want our children to receive the best possible education we can provide them with, which includes a balanced daily diet to give them the best chance possible in life. Many thanks in advance for anything that can be donated and together, let's make 2013 a great year for education in Peru. Thanks
