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.

Local teachers making a positive difference

It has been a fantastic few months in Perú. Our local teachers, many of whom started teaching this year and who previously were students at our schools and who we helped through college, are settling well into their roles. The reinforcement teachers we pay for this year have paid immediate dividends with the average grades in the classes rising and the children lagging behind have mostly been brought up to speed.

One of the areas we have been focusing on this year across The Phoenix Projects is the implementation of sustainable plans, including cows, chickens, weaving, fish and small businesses. Here in Perú we have started Plan Huerto (vegetable gardens). Not only do these provide income for the schools’ running costs for years to come they also provide much needed employment in the communities as income from the plans is reinvested into future plans and also shared between the families and the school. We employ almost 60 people full-time directly across Phoenix and the Plans increase this number to almost 200 which is phenomenal for the local economy and obviously the families as they now can provide for their families with an over-riding pride that they did it for themselves.

Over the next three months we look forward to the anniversary of Maldonado in November and the final exams towards the end of December and the final graduations from 6th grade. Our aim, funds permitting, is to set up each of our graduates with a small business sustainable plan which will help them cover costs of secondary school and college in the future.

Thank you all for your generous support in the past and hopefully in the future – all your donations are helping to build a fantastic and sustainable future for the communities in which we work.

Cheers

Sustainable Plans for the elderly

It has been a fantastic few months in Guatemala. One of the areas we have been focusing on this year across The Phoenix Projects is the implementation of sustainable plans, including cows, chickens, weaving, fish and small businesses. Here in Guatemala we have started Plan Moo (cows), Plan Pollo (chickens) and Plan Corte (weaving). Not only do these provide income for the schools’ running costs for years to come they also provide much needed employment in the communities as income from the plans is reinvested into future plans and also shared between the families and the school. We employ almost 60 people full-time directly across Phoenix and the plans increase this number to almost 200 which is phenomenal for the local economy and obviously the families as they now can provide for their families with an over-riding pride that they did it for themselves.

The plans are designed so the elderly can benefit from them too, bringing their experience with weaving and livestock into play and using the proceeds of the plans to buy medicines and other food.

Thank you all for your generous support in the past and hopefully in the future – all your donations are helping to build a fantastic and sustainable future for the communities in which we work.

Cheers
