Summary

Honduras is the poorest country in Latin America with the majority of those struggling live in rural communities. In 2004 we found a small community called San Rafael who only had access to the primary school, meaning after primary there was no-where to go to continue education. Phoenix set up their secondary school in the community in 2008, opening their doors to all the surrounding communities too. Paying for staff, utensils, books and fruit the children were given a chance to learn more!!

Challenge

Honduras is the second poorest country in central America after Guatemala and the poverty is mainly found in the highlands of western Honduras. In these rural areas of Honduras 63% of the population live in poverty with 50% of that considered extreme poverty; this is where we work. In rural communities it is hard to get to primary schools close by and near impossible to get to secondary school. This leaves them with little opportunity to grow and develop out of poverty.

Solution

Phoenix brings secondary education to the children in 9 rural communities. Children love learning, and love continuing to learn to develop themselves out of poverty, Phoenix stands by them and supports them to do just that by providing nutrition and education. By telling the children they are worth something and deserve opportunities just like everyone else.

Long-Term Impact

These communities want to learn, to develop, Phoenix will help them do that and by teaming it with sustainable plans provided by our donors and run by the community the projects will become self sustainable and be able to run themselves, supporting the generations of rural communties to come.
