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.
This month in Honduras we focused on education and celebration!
Each year, we meet our new first graders in San Rafael and this year they have been as impressive as ever! They are so eager to learn they have specifically requested more homework each day – I wonder how long it will last!!
We also celebrated Mother’s day, an event organized by our secondary school students! They put on a program of dance, drama and comedy for the Mums, with the most memorable moment the ‘Honduran Sack Dance’ performed by some of our younger students.
What a proud and memorable day!
Good education (and fun!) is absolutely vital for the development of the children and their families. Thanks to you and your continued support through donations we can keep improving the livelihoods of these communities!
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.

Our last report told of the school doors reopening, this is our focus this year. Continuing to offer a strong level of education and a food and fruit programme. Our school has become so popular we have built two temporary classrooms which need more development to make them strong enough to be permanent.
Our dedication to education continues thanks to the generosity of donors like you, supporting these children to continue discovering education. So please, consider a donation now and let us benefit from a further 30% on top of your donation COMPLETELY FREE!
Don't delay, donate now!
This Wednesday, get ready for an exciting way to make your donation BIG. Keep an eye on your emails on Wednesday morning for an announcement on how to make your donation grow!

The new school year started this past week in Honduras, with over 100 children in the primary school, and over 110 in the Phoenix secondary school and college, where thanks to donations present and future, we now hire 6 local teachers.
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 Honduras. Even a phonecall to your manager or Head Office can make all the difference!
