The Phoenix Projects began in Honduras in 2004, working on water projects providing running water to rural Ch’orti’ communities in the Copán area (click here for some vocabulary). Since then, education projects were started in San Rafael in 2006 and Barbasco in 2010. In 2008 we started the Phoenix Secondary School and College, paying for teachers’ salaries and daily transport as well as materials allowing teenagers and adults from nine surrounding communities – many walking over two hours each way – to receive secondary and college education graduating in “Rural Social Enterprise”. We have also undertaken extensive construction at both schools including roofing, toilets and kitchens to provide daily hot food and fruit for the children. We also completed an energy efficient stove project for families in the community. We aim to provide the funds for around 200 children and teenagers to receive official education in primary, secondary, college and University levels each year.
