Sustainable income generation

On the Phoenix project in Honduras we have developed a new income generating initiative to secure Secondary education for students in the communities of San Rafael and Barbasco.

Project director Dom Williams explains:  ‘After numerous meetings with the communities of San Rafael and Barbasco everyone is in agreement that is it a good idea and Plan Café has been given the green light to begin! Both communities have given a total of 2.5 hectares of land to the project and now Phoenix has bought roughly 12,000 small coffee plants to be planted on the land. The coffee, once the plants are mature in 2-3 years, will then be cut and sold, and the profit will go towards the secondary school to help pay teachers salaries year-on-year. All of this will help create a sustainable income for the school.

This initiative clearly demonstrates the long term vision we try to implement on our projects which enables communities to take the lead and provide and themselves provide the needs to secure continuation of the project.

 

In addition to ‘Plan Cafe’ donations to the GVI charitable Trust have helped to fund the food and fruit program in the school, bring in much needed educational materials, fund birthday celebrations four secondary teachers and the local dialect, Chorti teacher.
