Phoenix Challenges - Nicaragua on the slopes

13 Challengers are currently on the slopes of one of eight volcanos in four days in Nicaragua to raise funds for the Phoenix projects, the 9th Charity Challenge for Phoenix projects in Latin America this year, raising funds for daily food programs, local teachers, primary, secondary and college scholarships, old people schemes, classroom building and more.

So far in 2011, over 100 GVI volunteers have been involved in Charity Challenges in Latin America, raising over $160,000 for the cause. We thank each and every donor for their undying support to take the projects to a new level, especially in 2012, and most importantly, we thank the communities and the children. Cheers.
