Phoenix Honduras continues the theme of excellent exam results

The kids at San Rafael are doing great! We recently got their test results and they couldn´t be doing better with huge advances being made, thanks to the volunteers on our Honduras Childcare project.

Volunteers always comment on how far along and advanced their studies seem to them.
Without their two teachers and the continuous help of the volunteers, they wouldn´t be able to show and see for themselves how intelligent they really are.

Last year we had a national evaluation done. They came from Tegucigalpa and selected 3 communities in Copán. San Rafael was one...and the best! The kids got the highest scores in the region which is thanks to everyone's hard work over the years.

This year the government will be conducting the tests again and the kids are more than ready! Jonny, our six month comboer has just moved down to Honduras to add to the excellent work being done by Betty, our project manager down there.

2009 has been affected with the current government situation, though thanks to all the volunteers who have stuck with it, the progress being made is continued and 2010, thankfully, is looking good on the ground.

In the next couple of weeks, we'll be blogging the success of our GVI Phoenix fully-funded secondary school and their results, which by all accounts, are excellent and have exceeded expectations.


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?

The following film was made in Guatemala, though the message is the same across all GVI Phoenix projects
