I donated in support of this campaign.
$2,600 towards $2,500
My goal is to walk 250 miles and raise $2500 for Our Little Roses for the month of August! If you feel so moved to contribute, you can pledge anything per mile ex.: 50 cents or $1 per mile) or a one time donation. Join me and Our Little Roses in supporting real change. Our Little Roses is a non-governmental organization (NGO) dedicated to rescuing young girls in Honduras from situations of risk. In an effort to provide them with a safe space to be young girls, they have created the first and only all girls' home in San Pedro Sula, Honduras where little girls and young women can now escape abject poverty. The focus of Our Little Roses is to empower 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 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.
Our Little Roses seeks to aid the girls and young women of Honduras to become elements of change in their community by providing them with the best education they can achieve. Through sponsorship, donations, and support Our Little Roses transforms, motivates, and empowers these girls to rise up out of poverty.
Join Our Little Roses and myself in this fight to help educate these young girls because as Beyoncé would say... Who Runs the World? GIRLS!
Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my fundraising goal with Our Little Roses.
