2024 off to a great start in Peru

By Dom Williams | Founder and Director

I hope all is well with you. It has been a great start to the year on our project in Perú. After two months' break the new school year has got back underway with more children entering grades one and two as increased numbers of families migrate from the interior of the country (the altiplano and jungle). 

Once we know the total number of students we will provide each one with their own text and workbook, as we do each year. We are also installing filtered water dispensers in each classroom due to the poor quality and irregular supply. The school vegetable garden was replanted a few weeks back so the first harvest of the year for the daily meals will be undertaken shortly.

It goes without saying that you cannot study on an empty stomach though the vast majority of the families where we work cannot provide much more than the absolute basics at home, usually a few boiled or dried potatoes or noodles in hot water with some herbs. Some governments have become more proactive with school meals over the years by providing some supplies like rice and beans though these generally run out well before the next delivery.

We have seen the success of the Plan Huerta that we started in Perú in 2022 with Impington International College and which we will continue to expand in 2024 having added more in 2023. The government sends doctors each year to check on the children’s basic health and whilst most are underweight and anemic the levels of chronic malnutrition have reduced.

As you can see we've had a great start to the year and to help us continue our work over the next few months GlobalGiving will be matching all donations up to $50/£40 by 50% this week (Monday 8th - Friday 12th April) whilst available funds last as part of their Little By Little Campaign which is a fantastic opportunity for the projects. If you can donate anything this week to take advantage of the matching, thank you so much in advance. 

For those of you with Instagram we have started to update our account once again after a couple of years’ hiatus so please do seek us out on phoenix_flying_2020

We are nearing capacity for the Patagonia Charity Challenge (please follow the link below for details and costs) which is raising money for all the projects so if you are interested in joining us in November 2024 please do let us know by emailing info@thephoenixprojects.org 

We will also be taking on the London Bridges Charity Challenge again on Saturday 3rd August followed by a reunion in a pub. If you are interested in getting involved with the bridges or just coming to the reunion afterwards please do let us know by writing to the email shown above!  

All the best for April.

Cheers
