Project Report | Nov 21, 2018
Grandchildren making the elderly proud

By Dom Williams | Founder and Director

Whilst the elder generation continue to benefit from the plans we implemented years ago with the medicinal plants and fruit trees we would like to speak this month about their grand-children. It has been an excellent few months in Guatemala with final exams done and dusted and the results showing vast improvements in many areas. The children learn a very varied curriculum including three languages (Kaqchiquel, Spanish and English), math, sciences and dance giving them an all round primary education. During the year our ten local teachers (many of whom were once students in the project) taught over 200 children. Our sustainable plans we have implemented over the years also helped many children continue their studies due to the added income. This is an area we would like to continue building on in the future – it’s in the community’s hands!

Our Appeal this year, in conjunction with Giving Tuesday on 27th November, aims to raise funds towards our local teachers’ salaries and materials for 2019. On average each teacher will educate between 25-30 children per class and will often teach more than one class so the more teachers we can bring on board for 2019, the more children we can give a vital education to whether this is primary, secondary or college.

Our local Phoenix teachers are the backbone of the projects. Their daily dedication to hundreds of indigenous children in Guatemala cannot be commended enough. They are the future of the projects as well as their communities and we must guarantee this future with funding, both through donations in the short term and through sustainable income plans over the medium to long term.

In Guatemala for example, Ana was one of our first students when started our school in Itzapa, Guatemala back in 2002 and has been teaching in the school for the past few years. Her grandparents have benefited from our programs for years, since the start.

Over the next two months we hope to raise a large proportion of the $100,000 we plan to spend during 2019 on local teachers and materials so please do dig deep this Giving Tuesday on 27th November if you can and donate to this page or even crowd fund with friends, family and co-workers in your office or school and aim for one teacher’s salary for the whole year!

Examples:
$3,725 can cover 1 teacher for 25-30 children for one year
$1,860 can cover1 teacher for 25-30 children for six months
$930 can cover 1 teacher for 25-30 children for three months
$310 can cover 1 teacher for 25-30 children for one month

$180 can cover 1 child for one year
$90 can cover 1 child for six months
$45 can cover 1 child for three months
$15 can cover 1 child for one month

On behalf of all the communities where we work, thank you so much in advance for anything you, friends and family can donate for the communities and their future!
