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). Education projects were started in San Rafael in 2006 and Barbasco in 2010 as well as the local orphanage in Copán. We have undertaken extensive construction at both schools, including roofing, toilets and kitchens to provide daily hot food and fruit for the children.
We also started an energy efficient stove project for all families. In 2008 we started the Phoenix Secondary school, paying for teacher salaries allowing children from surrounding communities to receive secondary education and we hope to start a college in the next couple of years. Educational supplies are provided and cultural celebrations and birthdays are celebrated throughout the year.
