Mission Statement

Safe Passage/Camino Seguro empowers the poorest, at-risk children of families working in the community of the Guatemala City Garbage Dump, by creating opportunities and fostering dignity through the power of education.

Description

Known in Guatemala as Camino Seguro, Safe Passage's mission is to empower the poorest at-risk children of families who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community by creating opportunities and fostering dignity through the power of education. Safe Passage is a secular, non-political organization.

Within a safe and caring environment, we provide a comprehensive and integrated program that fosters hope, good health, educational achievement, self-sufficiency, self esteem and confidence for our affliates of all ages in efforts to promote positive change.

International volunteers are a vital and essential part of our program. They work in collaboration with our Guatemalan staff and national volunteers to provide educational support, promoting critical and creative thinking, as well as to provide positive reinforcement and emotional support.

The majority of our volunteers work directly with the students, however, we have a host of positions available for all different types of skills. Please check out our website for a list of volunteer opportunities.
