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 for a sutainable future

2016 has got off to a great start for the elderly population in our projects in Guatemala with many already seeing the benefits of our sustainable plans in their homes, which include cows for milk and chickens. Later in the year we will be planting fruit trees in the houses too. Some who are fitter and more able are getting involved in our weaving sustainable plan too which brings in more family income for medicines.  

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

School gets off to a great start in Nicaragua

With the school holidays over the school has recently opened its doors again for the 2016 educational year. As ever we will be concentrating on pre-school and those older students who need extra help with their school work. The government is finally becoming more involved with education so our preparation for the students is key to take advantage of better education opportunities in the future.

Summer school a huge success

As ever the first month of 2016 is summer school in Perú and our numbers doubled from 2015. Results have shown that our teaching has prepared the children graduating from 6th grade so well that they are in the top 5% percentile entering secondary education. We teach them more in each subject than is required by the Ministry of Education and it is proving to be hugely successful. Donations permitting we plan to take on three assistant teachers this year, all of whom were our ex-students and also purchase more educational materials and games.
