This year’s Challenge will be raising money towards implementing sustainable family income plans with the aim that each challenger can raise enough to implement their plans of choice!

For every £100 ($150) you raise you could start a Plan Pollo, Plan Huerto (vegetables) o Plan Negocio (small business).

For every £300 ($500) you could start a Plan Tilapia (fish).

For every £600 ($1,000) you could fund a cow in Plan Moo.

For every £1,300 ($2,000) raised you could fund a loom in Plan Corte or a grinding machine in Plan Nixtamal.

On Saturday 6th June 2015 the inaugural Phoenix Seven Continent Charity Challenge was undertaken.
