Summary

UNICEF states that Guatemala has the highest percentage of chronically malnourished children in Latin America and the fourth highest in the world. We know this can be combated in the short-term by food support and in the long-term through education. Only 30% of children who start primary school education get to grade six and even less go onto secondary school. We aim to provide free, good education for up to 600 children and more.

Challenge

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 aim to provide the best education by employing recently graduated local teachers and staff for 600 children in Guatemala.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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 for fifteen years (the majority of which are in Guatemala) and have educated over 5,000 children opening up better job opportunities for each one and breaking the cycle of poverty.
