Fly The Phoenix

Fly the Phoenix believes that education, as well as daily food, are basic human rights. In order to combat the imbalances of these rights, we are creating sustainable, 25-year cycle, educational community programs. These are funded by our local income-initiatives, challenges and international donations through our registered charity, Fly The Phoenix.
Education & food for 600 children in Guatemala
 
UNICEF states that Guatemala has the highest percentage of chronically malnourished children in Latin America and the fourth highest in the world. We know this can be combated in the short-term by food support and in the long-term through education. Only 30% of children who start primary school education get to grade six and even less go onto secondary school. We provide free, good education to 600 children and team it with the nutrition they need for the best start in life. project reportread updates from the field
Education & nutrition for 60 children in Peru
 
We aim to provide better primary education to 60 children in Maldonaldo, Arequipa, in Peru who currently only have one national teacher. By employing another teacher we can provide the children with better education than they had. Schools can be a long walk away and have low level education standards. By providing teachers, quality education, utensils, food and fruit we make sure children get the education they deserve and the right start in life. project reportread updates from the field
Feed 200 Neglected Elderly in Guatemala
 
During the year, we aim to provide food parcels or trees to the elderly members of the community to help suplement their diets or allow them to grow their own firewood. We also aim to provide them with medicinal plants. project reportread updates from the field
Education & nutrition for 100 children in Ecuador
 
We provide local teachers and daily food and fruit in some of the poorest, most rural, communities in Ecuador where finding enough money to feed the family is as much as they can afford. Yet education is the key to development, to bringing a family out of poverty. We believe, we can get more children into further education, something they deperately want, through the support of generous donors. project reportread updates from the field
Education & nutrition for 166 children in Honduras
 
Honduras is the poorest country in Latin America with the majority of those struggling live in rural communities. In 2004 we found a small community called San Rafael who only had access to the primary school, meaning after primary there was no-where to go to continue education. Phoenix set up their secondary school in the community in 2008, opening their doors to all the surrounding communities too. Paying for staff, utensils, books and fruit the children were given a chance to learn more!! project reportread updates from the field
Food & fruit for 1,000 children in Latin America
 
Fly the Phoenix provides free education to over 1,000 children in Latin America. But, it doesn't stop there, we also provide a nutritious meal and tasty piece of fruit everyday to combat the problems of malnutrition. With many mouths of feed in the house the food we provide can often be the only meal the children get each day and we make sure it is a good, nutritious meal filled with everything they need to grow big and strong. project reportread updates from the field
The Massie Family supports Guatemalan Education
 
The Massie family from Rochester truly believe in the work that The Phoenix Projects are doing in Guatemala and are striving to help them create sustainable primary, secondary and college opportunities for more than 500 children. Eliza says "It difficult to put into words what the experience meant to me but it truly changed my heart. I have seen first hand what an incredible job this organization does and I also have witnessed the gigantic impact that these donations have for the children there" project reportread updates from the field
Fund a teacher and teach a class in Latin America
 
Everyone remembers their favourite teacher (and their least favourite!). A good teacher can be one of the most inspiring people. They educate you, care for you, support you and help you become your future. Here at Fly the Phoenix we are very aware of this and only employ the best teachers who have trained well and are really passionate about their work. Schools often fail in Latin America because the teachers are if low quality, we employ the best, local teachers. project reportread updates from the field
Sustainable Income Plans for The Phoenix Projects
 
At present the projects are 100% reliant on donations and fundraising. Depending on funding, as part of the next phase of The Phoenix Projects we hope to invest in sustainable income-generating plans (including cows, chickens, weaving and textiles) over the next few years which will ultimately make all the projects self-sustainable financially and create micro-businesses for the families. project reportread updates from the field
Education & food for 200 children in Nicaragua
 
Save the Children states that one third of Nicaraguan children never enroll, drop out or aren't able to finish elementary school to grade six. Not because they don't want to but because the need for them to work and support their family is greater than the need for them to learn. We provide free, good education to 200 children and team it with the nutrition they need for the best start in life. project reportread updates from the field
