The Rotary Club of London, through your World Community Service Committee, has committed to send “Market Kids” to school in Danli, Honduras.

These children are called “Market Kids” because Mom, almost always a single parent, must keep her children with her all day at the market. She cannot afford the cost to send them to school, and cannot afford alternate care. For 11 hours every day, while Mom scratches out enough income to feed her family and keep a tin roof over their heads, her children roam the market and surrounding streets. The conditions are ripe to be lured in gangs, crime, prostitution and drugs, and many will fall victim.

Without an education
These kids have no hope for a better life.
Our goal is to provide up to 550 qualified children and youth the school supplies, school uniforms, shoes and school activity fees required to enroll in school. The average cost is only $100/child for a year at school!
We need your help again!
We accept Visa, Master Card, cheques made payable to the Rotary Club of London Foundation (please give to Sandy Ronson) or on line at
Every dollar you contribute is very important! and YES, we are able to issue full tax receipts.
I will be in Honduras in February to photograph every child we help and in turn share the picture of your student(s) with you, with their “muchas gracias.” What a great gift to give to your adult children and grandchildren for Christmas.
Thank you for Helping us to Help these special Market Kids,
