Favela Phoenix would like to send a special and very warm thanks to Amy Kerr who arrived in Rocinha from the UK in late June and stayed for six weeks. Whilst she was here she was a fantastic help for the school, especially with the new infants class. She loved her time here and it was a tearful farewell for her when she left in early August (just before the Olympics began!). We will miss her but she promises to return next year - looking forward to it. Thank you so much for your support Amy and for the support from your family back home.
Jody King and other members of the Favela Phoenix team keep you up to date with goings-on at the school, in Rocinha and in the UK as we continue to rise up together.
