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.

Work continues in the nursery, preparing the medicinal plants for the elderly generation in the community, which will be ready to be handed out in July/August. Food is starting to be scarce again in the families' households and as ever, the elderly suffer more than most.

It has been a very productive first month of the school year in Maldonado with our paid-teacher Ediluz working well with three grades, without her the school would be a very difficult place to learn! We aim to start sustainable-income Plan Cuy (guinea pigs) in the houses of our children in the school, to benefit both them and our running costs in Maldonado. The sales of the guinea pigs, which reproduce very quickly, will not only provide a very useful income for the families though will also cover costs in the school, moving further towards sustainability.

Many things to look forward to in the next few months, including the anniversary and Mother´s Day. Please help us feed the kids fof the rest of the school year by donating towards our Gift For Good appeal. cheers

It has been a brilliant few months in Nicaragua, celebrating our 6th Anniversary in La Thompson in April, with typical dress, a dance-off, a historical tour or our project and dancing into the night to include the whole community. Relaxation techniques have been bought into the curriculm, with some fantastic results.

The educational work with all the children has been impressive with advances made in math and language. We have taken in children with special needs aswell and they have adapted well into the school environment. Here's looking forward to the next few months. Stay tuned and please help us feed these children for the rest of the school year by donating to our Gift For Good. cheers
