The Phoenix Projects began work in Perú in both primary and kindergarten schools in the Quechua-speaking (click here for some vocabulary) communities of Triunfo and Maldonado in Sachaca on the outskirts of Arequipa, in 2006. Teacher-to-class ratios are low and we currently pay for the full time employment of 1 local teacher and in 2015 we aim to employ previous students as assistant teachers.
Since inception, we have built classrooms and kitchens in the schools and water tanks in the communities as water is scarce. In February 2013, the Peruvian Ministry of Education started a food program in Triunfo so we now just concentrate in Maldonado.
