Phoenix takes shape in Brazil

Extremely exciting times in Salvador, Brazil, as Phoenix starts it's work on the ground there. We will be working with children in a very poor area from as young as 2 years old who otherwise may spend the days on the streets, working on basic manual dexterity to basic numeracy and literacy and reinforcement.

Currently, there is little opportunity for poor young children to receive an early education as nothing is easily available, unless private, so we will offer between 60-100 children these vital preliminary important steps, aswell as daily food.

There is huge opportunity for the project to grow, and the seeds have been sown for a fantastic new Phoenix grassroots project. Exciting times indeed and we look forward to seeing you on the ground!
