Project Report | Nov 28, 2023
Donations to Latin America will be amplified today

Making bread for the community

I hope all is well with you. To celebrate Giving Tuesday today all donations up to £2,000/$2,500 will be partially matched with a share of a $1.2 million pot which is a fantastic opportunity for the projects. Last year this amounted to a 25% matching on all donations.

All funds raised today from this year’s Appeal will be put towards our local teachers’ salaries, scholarships, classroom materials, daily fruit and sustainable plans.

Last year's Appeal, launched in September 2022, raised an incredible £21,000/$26,000 towards the £85,000/$106,000 we spent on The Phoenix Projects in Latin America over the following twelve months. As you can see clearly we were able to accomplish one quarter of our work in Latin America thanks to your generous support to the Appeal, including the annual Giving Tuesday partial matching. 

To take advantage of the partial matching today please donate to this page and thank you so much in advance.

Kulla Raymi was celebrated in the community in Ecuador. This is an indigenous ceremony asking Pachamama (Mother Earth) for fertility for the land and therefore good crops. This year’s celebration was especially poignant as an El Niño/climate change dry spell has hit the communities causing us to pause the purchase of cows in Plan Moo. The cows are crucial for the families' future as they will provide both milk and income for the elderly as well.  

As is tradition we celebrated Day of the Dead at the end of October with colada morada (fruit drink) and homemade bread with the students and their families. For the elderly members of the community who couldn't make it, parcels of food were taken to them.

As our vegetable garden in Perú increases we have more food we can share with the families, including the elderly. This can either be eaten or bartered for medicines. 

In Guatemala we hope to implement more sewing machines and vegetable gardens with extra income being able to be shared with the elderly members of the community. Our scholarship programme is already producing graduates who will be able to find good-paying employment which can also be shared with the elderly relatives.

Have a great December and thank you so much in advance for anything you can donate today to the Appeal so we can receive the Giving Tuesday matching.

Cheers
