El Proyecto Fenix
Our mission is to elevate the standard of living for the families with the direst needs in our local communities through education, cooperative economics, and accountability to end the generational cycle of poverty. We are one of few non-profit corporations providing a gateway to self-sustainability.
What creates poverty is the lack of opportunity for education and employment. Our participants grow their self-respect and dignity by learning how to financially provide for themselves. Join our community of donors and sponsors. Learn more about our project and programs below.
Only $150 will enroll a new family into the program. Families already enrolled in the program
will receive training in the areas of Life Skills, Money Management, Job Readiness, and Basic
Business Development. On completion they will receive a small graduated monthly stipend to
aid them in their transition from poverty to freedom. The stipend is paid monthly for 12
months. Your contribution provides education, employment opportunities, and basic cash
Provides temporary shelter and basic needs for a maximum of 90 days. The recipient reimburses the Emergency Assistance Fund over time from their monthly EPF stipend.
There is a vast need for adequate housing for our families and the community. Your support will go towards creating the infrastructure for SELF sustainable communities.
Support for 150 Families
We no longer make the families co-dependent on what others might provide them, we teach them to ‘fish’, independence, and self-sustainability. Working together, sponsors and donors with El Proyecto Fenix, the Fenix (El Proyecto Fenix families) will rise.
Below is a photo album of one of the child particpants in our program. It sums up the why and the need for our program. What we do is teach people the skills they need to escape poverty and build brighter futures for themselves and their families. And with your help, we can continue to change lives. For less than $15 a month, you can help us reach our initiative.
