End of the school year - back in September!

World Cup mania
World Cup mania

As the school year draws to a close in Ecuador we can reflect on huge advances in the education, thanks to our four Phoenix-paid for local teachers in the three communities in which we work. By employing them and also paying for their transport to and from the communities each day we are ensuring the best possible education we can provide for the kids in the remote hamlets in which we work.

During the school break we will be investing in vegetable gardens and chicken coups with the aim to sustainably continue with our daily food and fruit program from September whilst also providing a little extra for the local families. As the new term starts, we aim to continue with our local teachers and hopefully add a couple more to help out in the schools.

Many thanks for your generous support and together we can provide the best possible education for the kids in Ecuador.

Gift For Good - feed a child for the rest of 2014

Hand-made fabric purse - Gift For Good appeal

We have launched our Gift For Good, where for a donation of just $35 you will receive a hand-made fabric purse and also feed one child for the rest of the school year, definitely the perfect Gift For Good! Please follow this link or the link at the bottom of this report to make a difference.

School is back underway after the mid-year break (classes started in September 2013) and immediately exams are on the horizon! Daily hot food is still handed out to the children and we continue to cover the transport costs of two familes' children to attend school - an hour each way - as well as the transport of the local teachers. Our four teachers we pay for continue to shine, especially in Larcacunga, where the government removed one of their two teachers, leaving a gaping whole which she quickly filled to continue the children's education.

Community meetings have been held in Muenala to discuss the implentation of the next stage of Plan Moo to sustainably cover some school costs in the future.

School winds up in June so lots to be done before then, and please do help us feed the kids for the rest of the school year by donating to our Gift For Good appeal.

Mid-year holidays in Ecuador

Learning in Huayrapungo
Learning in Huayrapungo

As we swiftly move into February and all our projects are now back up and running after the main holidays, our projects in Ecuador have already completed half the school year, which started back in September, and are on their mid-term break! Our sustainable income plans are beginning to bear fruit, with Plan Papa yielding several tonnes of potatoes, which once sold, provide income for our food program, as well as obviously using some of them aswell!

Due to the success of our local teachers in this first 6 months, we plan to increase the number of local teachers we employ and supplement the food program, as well as providing better and more educational materials that will improve further the level of education we can provide once the new school year starts up again in September.

It is thanks and testimony of your support during these past years, and years to come, that we can continue the projects, getting better each year and providing an education for these communities that had little chance or opportunity.

In 2014, we will be holding three charity challenges in Guatemala as well, so if you fancy heading down, seeing the projects and raising funds by challenging yourself, please see our website on http://www.thephoenixprojects.org/donate-now/challenges/

Thank you for your continued support during 2014!

cheers

Ensuring progress in 2014 - Happy Holidays

Daily food and fruit
Daily food and fruit

As 2013 comes to a close we can reflect to a terrific year in Ecuador as the first half of the school year draws to an end - to restart right after Christmas. We have taken on two more local teachers thanks to donations and continued our daily food and fruit programs. Our sustainable plans are coming along well, with Plan Moo helping to cover secondary school costs and Plan Papa helping to sustain our food and fruit programs.

During this festive season we have to look ahead to 2014 and beyond; get donations in the bank to ensure our programs progress and improve over the coming months; ensure our children have daily food and fruit; ensure we can pay our local teachers who do such a terrific job; make sure that the children have materials to study hard!

May I take this opportunity to thank you for previous donations and thank you in advance for donations to come. As we all share gifts this season, please share our message with friends and family and let’s all ensure a prosperous 2014 in The Phoenix Projects and their communities.

Happy holidays!

Two little words that can never be said enough!

Hi there

Hope you are well. As the year draws to an end we wanted to send you a quick update of our main successes from the past ten months, to take a moment to reflect upon exactly what your support has achieved.

This year, across all of our projects, we accepted more students into the schools and are currently supporting over 1,000 children, handing out over 250,000 pieces of fruit, 35,000 pieces of bread and over 100,000 hot meals to keep them warm, full up and nourished!

We have kept over 50 locals in work with 30 of them teaching the children over 28,000 teaching hours in classrooms that have been built and refurbished. On top of that, 30 of our old students have graduated and are now new teachers, ready to educate the world!

Our vital sustainable plans are going really well; Plan Café in Honduras will have its first crop later this year, Plan Moo continues to support secondary school students in Ecuador and new plans, Plan Arveja in Santa Maria and Plan Papa in Ecuador, have started this year!

We have also had some wonderful volunteers building stoves, teaching, painting and helping out throughout the year. And of course YOU, supporting every one of these children get the start in life they deserve. Thank you.

Not bad huh? We will be in touch next week with some exciting Christmas news, but for now pat yourselves on the back and congratulate yourselves for the support you have given us over the last ten months and remember how important your continuing support is for these wonderful children.

Thank you
