Education & nutrition for 166 children in Honduras

by Fly The Phoenix

Mother's Day!

Hi there,

This month in Honduras we focused on education and celebration!

Each year, we meet our new first graders in San Rafael and this year they have been as impressive as ever! They are so eager to learn they have specifically requested more homework each day – I wonder how long it will last!!

We also celebrated Mother’s day, an event organized by our secondary school students! They put on a program of dance, drama and comedy for the Mums, with the most memorable moment the ‘Honduran Sack Dance’ performed by some of our younger students.

What a proud and memorable day!

Good education (and fun!) is absolutely vital for the development of the children and their families. Thanks to you and your continued support through donations we can keep improving the livelihoods of these communities!

Next Wednesday, June 12, from 9am GlobalGiving is matching all donations to us at 50%. This means a donation of $10 would become $15 thanks to GlobalGiving. This is a fabulous opportunity for you to make your donation even BIGGER and have a BIGGER impact. I’ll send you a reminder just as the match funding starts but please, do consider making a donation that will give more than you expected!

Thank you.

Sarah

Phoenix secondary school in action - Honduras
Phoenix secondary school in action - Honduras

The new school year started this past week in Honduras, with over 100 children in the primary school, and over 110 in the Phoenix secondary school and college, where thanks to donations present and future, we now hire 6 local teachers.

This February, The Phoenix Projects and our charity Fly The Phoenix are launching Corporate February, where we are aiming to create partnerships with the Corporate Social Responsibility programs of large and small businesses, so we can work together for the future of all our projects in Latin America.

Business can play a huge role in educating children and supporting communities and we would love to expand our portfolio of like-minded companies working with us to achieve our longterm goals of sustainable education in marginalised communities in Latin America.

If you, family and friends are part of any business who would like to get involved, please do donate, and share the link of our program for Honduras. Even a phonecall to your manager or Head Office can make all the difference!

cheers

Secondary school teaching

February 2nd 2013 is upon us, quicker I think than we all imagined - the day the kids return to school for primary, secondary and college education with us on The Phoenix Projects. They have spent the past few weeks helping their families cutting coffee so they are eager for the new term to start.

This year, your very kind donations will be going towards the salaries of our local six teachers who give classes to secondary and college level children, something they simply would not have had in these rural communities in which we work. We enter out fifth year of this education and already, the fruits or our labour are impressive, with the children/teenagers bettering themselves each day, improving their chances in the limited Honduran job market.

We will also be investing more in Plan Café, which moves towards our sustainability model, by investing in income-generating sustainable plans and in the future, will bring in income for the schools to help pay the monthly costs.

Finally, we will also be running various charity challenges in Guatemala for the Honduras projects, so if you want to come down, see where your money is going, lend a hand and get involved in a charity challenge, please do email us on sarah@thephoenixprojects.org and have a look at the website on www.thephoenixprojects.org

Many thanks for making 2013 a special year, in the past, present and indeed future!

cheers
