Sustainable Income Plans for The Phoenix Projects

by Fly The Phoenix

Summary

At present the projects are 100% reliant on donations and fundraising. Depending on funding, as part of the next phase of The Phoenix Projects we hope to invest in sustainable income-generating plans (including cows, chickens, weaving and textiles) over the next few years which will ultimately make all the projects self-sustainable financially and create micro-businesses for the families.

Challenge

The Phoenix Projects provide education to almost 1,000 children in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Peru. At present the projects are 100% reliant on donations and fundraising. Also, the employment market for our students on leaving school is minimal.

Solution

By investing in sustainable income generating plans now, the projects become sustainable and employment and income is created through these micro-businesses in the future. As each family takes ownership of their sustainable income plans, more wealth is generated for them and their future income becomes more secure, whilst securing the projects.

Long-Term Impact

In the future, these plans will be employment and income providers, both for the schools and for the families. Once initial income is derived these small micro-businesses can be expanded into small local industries which provide further employment. Sustainable education, income and employment is the goal.
