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.

Sustainable plans sustaining the future

Plan Tilapia
Plan Tilapia

The past three months have seen lots of activity with sustainable plans in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Perú. In Guatemala, our cows in Plan Moo have given birth to 3 calves and the the chickens in Plan Pollo have provided daily income with eggs. Plan Huerto (vegetable gardens) have been started. In Honduras our Plan Tilapia is almost ready for the first catch and our Plan Huerto provided families and the school with much needed income. In Nicaragua Plan Ciber continues as a great business branching out into a restaurant. In Ecuador our Plan Pollo has begun to provide daily income and Plan Moo still sustainas all further education. We are looking into a dried fruit sustainable plan in Perú so keep posted on events there.

Community fundraising on 6th June

Excellent first exam results in Guatemala

As part of the Fly The Phoenix Seven Continent Charity Challenge on Saturday 6th June, the communities themselves will be undertaking events to raise awareness and funds. Please sponsor the communities as we strive to move towards sustainability over the next few years by donating to this page.

A brilliant few months across all the projects with some scintilating exams results, all thanks to our local teachers, the majority of whom we once our students and we have put through teaching college and now employ! In Guatemala, our first exams results were amazing from all the grades; the children are currently in their second set of exams as I write this report! In Honduras the 2014 national college results were published and Phoenix College was well above the national average in spanish language (80% compared to 60%) and maths (80% compared to 40%).

Our local teachers in Nicaragua continue to perform amazing work as our ever-growing classes have such a thirst for learning the basics! In Ecuador, our local teachers reported the neccesity of the afternoon reinforcement classes as the class sizes in the new centralized school are too big to allow individual attention and the children are falling behind. Ex-student Elizabeth, our new teacher's assistant in Perú, has settled in very well into her teaching role in grades 1 and 2 and we will be bringing in a new teacher's assistant, again an ex-student, in June.

Thank you all for your support and please do sponsor the community as they take on their hike on 6th June. Cheers

Community fundraising on 6th June

Daily Fruit
Daily Fruit

As part of the Fly The Phoenix Seven Continent Charity Challenge on Saturday 6th June, the communities themselves will be undertaking events to raise awareness and funds. Please sponsor the communities as we strive to move towards sustainability over the next few years by donating to this page.

Our daily food and fruit programs continue at pace across our projects in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Perú. We have also started to implement sustainable family income plans which can provide extra food including milk, eggs, vegetables and meat. With harvests continually being ruined by changes in the climate and the uncertainty of whether they will produce at all, having daily family mini-businesses they can resort to is a major bonus for all our families. The more funds we receive, the more of these plans we can introduce.

Thank you all for your support and please do sponsor the community as they take on their hike on 6th June. Cheers
