Our Little Roses Home For Girls

Little girls begging for food is an all too common sight in Honduras, one of the poorest countries in Central America. The National Statistics Institute reports that 60 percent of Hondurans live below the poverty line; in rural areas, the rate rises to 65.4 percent. Two-thirds of children are malnourished and lack access to safe water, sanitation and education. Just less than half of Honduran children complete more than three years of education.

Our Little Roses provides a full-time residential home for abused, abandoned and neglected girls in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, dedicated to transforming broken lives into productive, joyful young women. The girls who arrive at Our Little Roses often come from overwhelming situations of abject poverty, physical or sexual abuse, abandonment and oppression. They are infants, toddlers, young girls and teenagers. They have endured extreme neglect, abandonment, and abuse. They often are left alone to fend for themselves --unable to care for or protect themselves.

For more than 25 years Our Little Roses has rescued these frightened girls from situations of extreme risk and cared for, raised and educated them in a safe, secure and loving home. For most it may be the first time they receive a balanced diet, medical and health care, spiritual formation, a chance to attend school, and, perhaps most importantly, love and respect. The vision of Our Little Roses is to prepare these once frightened, destitute, and hungry girls to be integral members of society by caring for and raising them in an atmosphere of love, self-reliance and respect and providing the best educational opportunities available to them, ensuring they succeed in breaking the cycle of poverty, abuse and illiteracy from which they come and live their life to the fullest, as God created them to be.
