Phoenix Project

Poverty reduction, health promotion and environment.

We are embedding education in focused projects, enabling better health and less poverty. Educating people to help themselves will ensure sustainable change.

We work with our partners to reduce poverty, promote health and produce a sustainable environment.

To achieve our goals we frequently work with partners. If an opportunity comes up, you may be approached to help us.
