Few of us get the chance to change the world. However, you can join me to change the world for the girls at Our Little Roses in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
I'm cycling my age to raise money for these girls and young ladies. That's 64 miles/105 kilometres (ugh!) in a single ride. I've been to the Mission and met the girls. Each is precious! Please donate to help them have a bright future.
You can donate online or by check. To donate online, please click the "Donate" button on the right. If by check, please make it payable to "Our Little Roses" and send it to The Church of the Advent, 54 Delaware Road, Kenmore NY 14217. Please be sure to write that you are Sponsoring Larry's Bike Ride in the memo section of the check.
Our Little Roses is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that rescues young girls in Honduras from extreme risk. To provide them a safe space to be young girls, OLR has created the only all girls' home in San Pedro Sula, Honduras where little girls and young women can escape abject poverty. OLR empowers these young girls through education and love in an atmosphere of unity, respect, and security to transform them into successful women.
In a country where only 7% of the population achieves a high school-level education, 75% of the girls of Our Little Roses have graduated high school, Moreover, 13% have gone on to achieve Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate degrees. Right now, OLR in Honduras is home to 72 young girls (ages 7 months to 26 years old) and counting.
Just a small donation will go a long way to help me meet my fundraising goal with Our Little Roses.
