Update from Peru!

Hi there!

We sent you an update on Saturday giving you an update on how the projects are progressing and how well the students are doing.

As I mentioned on Saturday, the students would not be making such progress in school if it wasn’t for your support and dedication to helping fund the projects.

Just in this moment, GlobalGiving started their June Bonus Day and are offering us 50% on all donations that are made today, whilst match funding lasts. If you were planning on making a further donation to the projects, this is the moment to do so!!

All we ask is that you click on the link below and make a donation and GlobalGiving will automatically add on the extra 50%!!

Thank you so much for your continued support.

Maldonaldo celebrates their anniversary!

Antorchas at night
Antorchas at night

Hi there

This month, Victor Maldonado celebrated its anniversary, with the usual “antorchas” marched around with pride at night! They also celebrated with a day in the school, with theatre, poems, songs and games. Celebrating the anniversary is so important for the children and the community, allowing them to learn and improve their future lives.

Special celebrations and normal school days are all part of a well-rounded education and are vital for these children. Thanks to you and your continued support through donations we can continue to make school great!

Next Wednesday, June 12, from 9am GlobalGiving is matching all donations to us at 50%. This means a donation of $10 would become $15 thanks to GlobalGiving. This is a fabulous opportunity for you to make your donation even BIGGER and have a BIGGER impact. I’ll send you a reminder just as the match funding starts but please, do consider making a donation that will give more than you expected!

Thank you

Sarah

As Mother's Day is near, we focus on helping Moms

Scrummy food in Peru!
Scrummy food in Peru!

As we come close to US Mother's Day on May 12, we are focusing on supporting our Moms in Peru!

In Perú this month we have had an exciting addition to our nutritional program and provided by the Government!  The Government irregularly send food to our project in Perú, if there isn't enough food then we cover the extra food costs as the children cannot manage without the food they are given in school. On top of the main meal, we also provide fruit everyday to each child to ensure they are given enough nutrition through vitamins and minerals.

This month, the Government has added the addition of powered milk to the nutritional programe! Powdered milk, with water added, can provide a plethra of nutrition for the children. It contains carbohydate, protein, calcium, amino acids, vitamins and minerals which will boost the children's health incredibly. This new addition to the children's diet, prepared by Phoenix cooks, will affect the children a lot and we hope to see health improving over the next few months.

Not only does the food program support the children greatly, it also lifts a weight off the minds of their Moms. All Moms want is the best for their children, and this program is giving them that.

We are part of Global Giving's Mother's Day campaign this year, celebrating Moms in the US and Guatemala through one gift. If you would like to support Mom's in Guatemala, whilst gifting your Mom a handmade scarf and set of worry dolls then please take a look at our gift:

Heavy rains and growing donations!

Always time for play time!
Always time for play time!

This Wednesday, get ready for an exciting way to make your donation BIG. Keep an eye on your emails on Tuesday afternoon for an announcement on how to make your donation can grow!

In Peru, the communities and surrounding area of our schools have been severely affected by the unseasonal heavy rains. However, unperturbed, Summer School continued through January and February, with extra classes for the children who weren't so successful in their exams at the end of 2012 to try to get ahead for the new term.

Sometimes the children, for various reasons, aren't successful in completing the year first time, but that doesn't stop us! With one-on-one classes focusing on the areas where they struggle and a little bit of attention and confidence building we know they will be successful next year!

Look out for our next report on Tuesday afternoon with our exciting announcement and plans for 2013!

Thank you for your continued support.

Corporate February for The Phoenix Projects

Summer school in Peru
Summer school in Peru

With the new school year rapidly approaching in our schools in Perú, we are continuing with our summer school program, with the children going over the basics of mathematics and language, readying themselves for the new term starting in March.

This February, The Phoenix Projects and our charity Fly The Phoenix are launching Corporate February, where we are aiming to create partnerships with the Corporate Social Responsibility programs of large and small businesses, so we can work together for the future of all our projects in Latin America.

Business can play a huge role in educating children and supporting communities and we would love to expand our portfolio of like-minded companies working with us to achieve our longterm goals of sustainable education in marginalised communities in Latin America.

If you, family and friends are part of any business who would like to get involved, please do donate, and share the link of our program for Perú. Even a phonecall to your manager or Head Office can make all the difference!

cheers
