IMPACT CAMPAIGN

JOIN SISTER's MISSION


This documentary celebrates Sister Maria Rosa Leggol’s life, her humanitarian efforts and entrepreneurial endeavors which have affected so many Honduran citizens and their communities.

Our campaign will focus on three overarching objectives:

1. Raise global awareness about Sister's life saving work
2. Inspire people to help support her mission with fiscal sponsorship
3. Cement her powerful legacy by ensuring that her organization can continue her mission of advocating for, and protecting, Honduran children.

“Once I had a group of young people who were so rebellious.  I gave them some pencil and paper and told them ‘we will write anything that’s bothering us on this paper.’ And we burned those pieces of paper. Our past is now ashes…now we are going to start living a new life.”

We partnered with schools to raise funds to send students to school through our “Women Helping Women” campaign.

Students sold these beautiful bracelets—each covering the cost of educating one girl for one month at the Reyes Irene School in Honduras!

ONE BRACELET = ONE MONTH OF EDUCATION

We will be resuming the Women Helping Women program for the 2022-2023 school year and will be developing initiatives to support girls' education in Honduras.
