Only 30% of children who start primary school education reach grade six at the correct age and even less go onto secondary school. Having provided education for 3,000 children to date we are now concentrating on putting between 600-1000 students through secondary school and college over the next ten years. Due to COVID-19 we aim to provide hand sanitizer and soap over the long-term for all our students for when they enter and leave the schools each day to reassure parents that it is safe.
Children in Guatemala are worth more working in the fields or helping in the home than being educated and so many are missing out on education. Those in education in rural communities find that the education is so poor they never finish even primary school due to falling behind so much from poor teaching methods. We have provided the best education by employing recently graduated local teachers and staff for around 3,000 children so far.
Fly the Phoenix aims to provide the best education by working closely with communities and employing local teachers, giving opportunities to recent graduates and helping them with University costs to continue their own educational journey. By working closely with the community we also provide sustainable programs which offer support to the family, as a whole, empowering them to bring themselves out of poverty.
We are creating a 25-year plan to empower a community to bring itself out of poverty through education and nutrition using sustainable methods. We have been working closely with many communities in Latin America since 2002 and have educated over 5,000 children opening up better job opportunities for each one and breaking the cycle of poverty.
