Hi Friends, as many of you know, I work for Our Little Roses, a non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to rescuing young girls in Honduras from situations of risk, as dire as shown in the image above.
The focus of Our Little Roses is to empower these girls through education and love in an atmosphere of unity, respect, and security so that they can grow up safely and become successful women with options. In a country where only 7% of the Honduran population has achieved 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. At the moment, Our Little Roses in Honduras is home to 60+ young girls (ages 1 year to 26 years old) and counting.
Here is a glimpse of what our home looks like...
I arrived in Honduras yesterday and will be here for the month of August, doing laps around the property with some of the girls. My goal of 50 miles by the end of the month. If you would like to support my fundraising goal, that would be great!
