Everyone remembers their favourite teacher (and their least favourite!). A good teacher can be one of the most inspiring people. They educate you, care for you, support you and help you become your future. Here at Fly the Phoenix we are very aware of this and only employ the best teachers who have trained well and are really passionate about their work. Schools often fail in Latin America because the teachers are if low quality, we employ the best, local teachers.


Around 60% of children who start primary school actually finish in Latin America and this figure rises as you get to more rural areas. One reason for this is schools being too far to travel to and when the children arrive they are greeted by bad teachers, dated teaching methods and no-one who speaks their mother-tongue (Spanish is their second language). A lack of understanding of the need for education teamed with bad resources means more indigenous children shy away from school.


We employ the best teachers, often teachers that originally attended our school, to ensure the children receive the best education they can. Our teachers are fluent in the mother-tongue and Spanish to allow a full understanding of the topics covered. 1,000 children receive one of the highest levels of education from an inspiring, caring, passionate teacher who encourages them to learn, succeed and do their best.

Long-Term Impact

Our teachers represent all that is good about education. These teachers inspire the children to learn, grow and become teachers or other professionals themselves. Over time we want to hand these projects over to the communities, into the hands of these teachers and future teachers to run by themselves; this can only be done by the best. We are also using sustainable plans to ensure that the projects are funded internally for years to come, not through external donations.
