THE STORY:

Who We Are:

Iva and Soren, MFA students from Sarah Lawrence College and NYU, respectively. We met while when poet Spencer Reece visited a joint class between our two programs.

Who Spencer Reese Is:

Spencer Reece, American poet and Episcopal priest, left in December 2012 after winning a Fulbright grant to travel to the Our Little Roses Home, the only girls’ orphanage in Honduras. He will spend a year there, teaching the girls poetry and helping them write a book of their own poems. The theme of the book is home.

What We Want To Do:

Bring our rampant love of poetry to these beautiful young protégés at Our Little Roses, teaching them some of our favorite poems as well as helping them write their very own. Poetry can be an incredible tool, as both a healing mechanism of empowerment and a way to forge new paths into the future. We will develop lesson plans for the week, introduce books, poems, and other literature, and engage and get to know the girls throughout the duration of our stay. We will update you all with photographs and blog posts while we’re there.

How We Hope To Do It:

We need your help to raise enough money to go to Honduras for 10 days in October 2013. The money will be spent on two plane tickets from New York to San Pedro Sula. Once there, we will stay on the orphanage grounds with free room and board, bringing all other expenses to a minimum.

There's A Film, Too!:

Check out the teaser here:

“Our Little Roses Film chronicles the making of a film about an American-born Episcopal priest who travels to Honduras, the poorest Spanish-speaking country in the Western Hemisphere and, in that, the murder capital of the world - San Pedro Sula - to teach poetry to a score of orphaned teenage girls at Our Little Roses orphanage, at the edge of one of the city's ram shackle barrios.”
