The 7 Continent Charity Challenge #2

Plan Corte
Plan Corte

On 30th April the children and the local teachers took part in the second Phoenix Seven Continents Charity Challenge to raise funds for local sustainable income plans which will not only provide income for local families to be able to help with their children’s further education costs, including college and university, though also to help sustainably cover our schools’ costs including local teachers salaries, daily food and fruit, school materials etc. This month, to get our Global Giving friends involved in the Seven Continent Charity Challenge, we would like to put all donations to this page towards sustainable income plans. A warm thanks in advance.

Huge advances in our sustainable plans have been made over the past few weeks with many more families getting involved and receiving an income. Trials with 400 tomato plants are nearing the harvest phase - if successful we will be rolling out a family plan in September to help cover secondary school costs for our graduates in Guatemala. Honduras Plan Pollo (chicken) trials have been positive and we are adding weavinglooms to Plan Corte. Plan Moo, the stalwart, see more cows added to the Phoenix herd!

Many thanks to you all and have a great May!

cheers

Both schools up and running in Guatemala

Construction

In Guatemala both Itzapa and Santa María opened their doors to the new school year. In Itzapa due to increased numbers of children we had to open a second 1st grade class, build a new classroom and take on a new teacher and assistant. We have also increased numbers of children in Santa María especially older children who have never been to school. In total over 20 local teachers will be employed this year in Guatemala, teaching over 300 primary children. Thanks to sustainable plans we have already implemented and hope to implement this year a further 100 to 200 children and teenagers should also enter secondary and college education.

Due to the huge success of our inaugural Phoenix Seven Continent Charity Challenge in 2015 we will be repeating it on Saturday 30th April. This year we will be asking that all funds raised will go towards implementing a sustainable plan of your choice so please do have a look at the link below for different targets from as little as $150 and also more information on challenges that are already in the pipeline which so far include the London Bridges Challenge (25km and 16 bridges) and the Wharfdale 3 Peaks in England; events in Boston and Austin in the US; climbing Acatenango volcano in Guatemala; painting the whole school inside and out in Honduras and hikes in both Ecuador and Perú. If you want to get involved, please do contact us on dom@thephoenixprojects.org

Sustainable Income Plans bearing fruit

Plan Moo

In 2016 we plan to continue investing in our sustainable income plans which not only provide essential extra income for the local families for medicine and further education costs though will also help us cover costs of our own schools. We plan to increase our herd in Plan Moo to 100 cows and increase the coverage of our Plan Pollo (chickens) to one hundred families. Plan Café in Honduras once again paid for all the graduation costs and admin needed and Plan Tilapia (fish) is due for its first harvest of the year. Plan Corte (weaving) is already providing regular employment as well as Plan Nixtamal (maiz grinding). We plan to start several sustainable plans in Perú including llamas and alpacas as well as vegetable gardens in all the countries. Our aim is to have 500 families benefitting from the plans by the end of the year; how...? Here's how:
