This project provides 1,000 children with free primary and secondary education in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Peru. Education is too expensive for many children so they often don't get the chance to learn and develop, instead remaining illiterate, malnourished and struggling to find work. By working with communities we can empower them to bring themselves out of poverty through our 25-year sustainable plan and grow into intelligent young adults like you and I.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Children in Latin America are worth more working in the fields or helping in the home than being educated and so many are missing out on education. Those in education in rural communities find that the education is so poor they never finish even primary school due to falling behind so much from poor teaching methods. We provide the best education, by employing local teachers and staff, for over 1,000 children in Latin America.
How will this project solve this problem?
Fly the Phoenix provides the best education by working closely with communities and employing the best teachers. We team our education with food and fruit to combat the problems of malnutrition amongst children and allowing them to concentrate in class. By working closely with the community we also provide sustainable programmes which offer support to the family, as a whole, empowering them to bring themselves out of poverty.
Potential Long Term Impact
We are creating a 25-year plan to empower a community to bring itself out of poverty through education and nutrition using sustainable methods. We have been working closely with 11 communities for ten years and have educated over 3,000 children opening up better job opportunities for each one and breaking the cycle of poverty. Once we know the 25-year plan is successful it will be able to be replicated around the globe in any community that needs it.
