Mission and Sponsorship in Honduras
Our Little Roses
“Ayudame, por favor.” (Help me please)
From Broken and Abandonment, to Love and Hope.
Little girls, often just three of four years old, begging for spare change or something to eat. Teary eyes, runny nose, dusty hands and faces, hungry, alone. It’s sad and common sight on the streets of Honduras, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Our Little Roses is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty and oppression in Honduras. They put faith into action by providing vulnerable girls with a safe, loving environment in which to grow up. The girls enjoy the basics they would otherwise never have.
Founder Diana Frade established Our Little Roses in 1988 after visiting an all boys home founded by an Episcopal priest in 1986. “Where do the girls go?”
Today, Our Little Roses Ministries provides the opportunity for a childhood that all girls deserve – protection from harm; a safe, healthy and loving home; a chance to learn; the dream of a future, and a foundation in faith. Many girls who once had little or nothing have graduated not only from elementary school, but from high school, some from university and one from dental school.
Evelin Nayeli is being sponsored by St. Mark's. She arrived at Our Little Roses the week that Marcia Allison was doing mission work there in January 2017. Evelin is 5 years old is is just starting school. St. Mark's is sponsoring her tuition and other educational expenses. If you want to help, you can make tax-deductible donations payable to St. Mark's, with "Our Little Roses" in the memo line. Details about sponsorship can be found at www.OurLittleRoses.org
