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.

It's all about Independence Day in Guatemala!

The children in the streets
The children in the streets

September is all about Independence Day in Guatemala. Our Itzapa school band played for hours through the streets in front of thousands of people keepíng up a good quick beat and bringing smiles to the hundreds who lined the streets. They have been practising for months and it all paid off. In Santa María traditional symbols were remembered in art classes. Both schools are coming to the end of the school year next month so plenty of preparation for the final exams!

This year’s Annual Appeal is dedicated to our daily food and fruit program with the aim to provide now and sustainably in the future: how? For every $30 donated to this page one child will receive the daily food and fruit we provide each year and we will also plant a fruit tree which will continue giving in the future. Many thanks for your donations in advance and together we can sustain daily food for the children.

And the band played on

The 2015 Daily Food and Fruit Appeal

Daily Fruit
Daily Fruit

Our daily food and fruit programs in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Perú have proven to be essential for the children's daily intake of vitamins and simply having soething in their stomachs to enable better learning. We have seen weight increases and their BMI's, whilst still in the malnourished zone, have improved over the year. This program must continue and become sustainable in the future.

The difference that 42 local teachers can make

Local teachers
Local teachers

Our forty two local teachers we employ in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Perú have made such a huge difference this year to the children's education. By having our main teachers working alongside our reinforcement teachers no child is left behind. Exam results accross the board are statistically higher than 2014 and this is down to the hard work of our teachers. Final exams are due in Guatemala and they are on course to be the best ever. Honduras finishes at the end of November for the school year, along with Perú and Nicaragua though the teachers are optimistic for fantastic results. Ecuador has restarted the school year and our reinforcement teachers there are ready for the next cycle!
