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.

Kinder, primary and secondary education in 2013

Learning the old-fashioned way!
Learning the old-fashioned way!

February 14th 2013 is upon us, quicker I think than we all imagined - the day the kids return to school for kinder, primary and secondary with us on The Phoenix Projects, and they can't wait. The classrooms are being prepared, planning sessions are being undertaken to make 2013 the best year so far for our education projects in Nicaragua.

This year, your very kind donations will be going towards the salaries of our local eight teachers who give classes to the kinder children and reinforcement sessions for primary and secondary. We are also bringing in a local sports teacher, as well as a local English teacher, to prove that anything is possible in the communities. By investing in local talent, knowledge and qualified teachers, the projects become more sustainable as reliance from afar lessens over the years. Obviously donations are needed to pay for their salaries, though the very presence of local employment is a huge plus.

We will also be investing in Plan Chicken, which moves towards our sustainability model, by investing in income-generating sustainable plans and in the future, will bring in income for the schools to help pay the monthly costs. Eggas and meat which come from chickens can be used in the school meals and also sold to bring income into the school.

Finally, we will also be running charity challenges in Nicaragua, so if you want to come down, see where your money is going, lend a hand and get involved in a charity challenge, please do email us on sarah@thephoenixprojects.org and have a look at the website on www.thephoenixprojects.org

Many thanks for making 2013 a special year, in the past, present and indeed future!

cheers

2013 brings six years of further education

Secondary school teaching
Secondary school teaching

February 2nd 2013 is upon us, quicker I think than we all imagined - the day the kids return to school for primary, secondary and college education with us on The Phoenix Projects. They have spent the past few weeks helping their families cutting coffee so they are eager for the new term to start.

This year, your very kind donations will be going towards the salaries of our local six teachers who give classes to secondary and college level children, something they simply would not have had in these rural communities in which we work. We enter out fifth year of this education and already, the fruits or our labour are impressive, with the children/teenagers bettering themselves each day, improving their chances in the limited Honduran job market.

We will also be investing more in Plan Café, which moves towards our sustainability model, by investing in income-generating sustainable plans and in the future, will bring in income for the schools to help pay the monthly costs.

Finally, we will also be running various charity challenges in Guatemala for the Honduras projects, so if you want to come down, see where your money is going, lend a hand and get involved in a charity challenge, please do email us on sarah@thephoenixprojects.org and have a look at the website on www.thephoenixprojects.org

Many thanks for making 2013 a special year, in the past, present and indeed future!

cheers
