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.

Two reasons to be Thankful this November

Dia del Nino

Everyone here at Phoenix wishes you all a very Happy Thanksgiving this coming week. There is also another reason to be extremely thankful thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who have generously provided $500,000 in matching funds for the unprecedented Global Giving 50% matching day on Tuesday 29th November where donations of up to $1,000 per donor per organization will be matched by 50% whilst funds last. In addition to this huge matching opportunity, all new recurring donations made from 29th November through December 31st will be matched at 200% up to $100, on the fourth donation!

How would this help our program in Guatemala? As we are in the middle of our Classroom Materials Appeal for 2017 we can receive a massive boost to reach our target of supplying materials for all our classrooms so the children can receive the best education possible. By receiving the donations before term starts we can buy more in bulk, getting more bang for our "matched"-buck! With each child having what is needed and not going short, their education, and the work by the local teachers, will be improved dramatically.

Every donation always helps us to help them, so please do dig deep this coming Tuesday 29th November and help us match their futures with the same generosity shown by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in conjunction with Global Giving.

Thank you

How would this help our programs in Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador and Perú? As we are in the middle of our Classroom Materials Appeal for 2017 we can receive a massive boost to reach our target of supplying materials for all our classrooms and the local teachers so the children can receive the best education possible. By receiving the donations before term starts we can buy more in bulk, getting more bang for our "matched"-buck! With each child having what is needed and not going short, their education, and the work by the local teachers, will be imprived dramatically.

During 2016 we have over 40 local teachers as part of Phoenix, most of whom were previous students, and we would like to add to the ranks in 2017. This matching Tuesday coupled with your generosity will take the projects on in leaps and bounds.

Every donation always helps us to help them, so please do dig deep this coming Tuesday 29th November and help us match their futures with the same generosity shown by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in conjunction with Global Giving.

Everyone here at Phoenix wishes you all a very Happy Thanksgiving this coming week. There is also another reason to be extremely thankful thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who have generously provided $500,000 in matching funds for the unprecedented Global Giving 50% matching day on Tuesday 29th November where donations of up to $1,000 per donor per organization will be matched by 50% whilst funds last.

How would this help our sustainable income programs in Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador and Peú? With more donations, especially matched, we can start to implement yet more sustainable income generating plans which not only help the projects cover their costs sustainably in the future, they also provide local families with much needed extra income. For example, the milk proceeds from a cow in Plan Moo plus the initial cow and subsequent calves once the plan has been completed could help send their chidlren through college and University. Budgetting is key and knowing we can have more in the pot thanks to "matching Tuesday" we can boldy plan ahead for 2017 and beyond.

Every donation always helps us to help them, so please do dig deep this coming Tuesday 29th November and help us match their futures with the same generosity shown by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in conjunction with Global Giving.

Thank you
