Upcoming Event: Mae Valenzuela and the Canadian Premier of "With This Light"
Wednesday, May 3 • 7:00 PM
Friends of Honduran Children presents the Canadian premier of the documentary film “With This Light”. During her 70 years as a nun, Sister Maria Rosa Leggol helped over 87,000 Honduran children escape poverty and violence through an ecosystem of social, educational and entrepreneurial projects, inspiring an international network of supporters to expand her work. This evening will also welcome Mae Valenzuela whose life work has been to connect people to the children in the orphanages in Honduras. Mae will speak about her work in Honduras.
Our mission is simple
Improve the lives of Honduran children by supporting basic needs and empowering them to break the cycle of desperate poverty.
Our efforts create results
By investing in sustainable programs rather than band-aid solutions, we’re helping them transform themselves – from victims of poverty to self-sufficient members of society.
We can’t change the world, but in this little part we can make a difference

The children captured my heart, and have never let go
Borders disappeared, and the sense of a global village emanated
