Plan Moo helps our Ancianos too

Plan Moo helping the elderly

Our recently implemented and on-going investment in Plan Moo (our income generating plan which creates income for families and the school through the sale of milk) is also hugely beneficial for our ageing population - see the photos. More income in the family means more food for the whole family, and this includes the elderly, so Plan Moo is a huge success so far. 

A recent study showed that medicinal plants we gave out during the last two years to our group of elderly population have been another great success. The small plants have now become large bushes and what the elderly don't use for personal consumption is sold in the local market, creating further disposable income.

Over the coming months we will also be investing in our income generating sustainable plans which should provide income for the schools as well as the local families. These include buying cows, chickens, weaving looms and micro-investment into local start-up businesses. By investing now we create employment for the future: education now, employment and income in the future. For more information on our sustainable plans, please follow this link and get involved!

Finally, let’s not forget what The Phoenix Projects are all for in Latin America: 40 local teachers, the majority of whom were previous students, teaching almost 1000 children daily whilst receiving food across five countries benefiting seven communities (fifteen if you include the communities our students come from in Honduras for our colegio)...all for under $200,000 a year - every penny and cent counts - thank you to everyone who makes this possible year after year.
