BENEFITING: Safe Passage

EVENT DATE: Aug 25, 2013

THE STORY:

My friends in the Guatemala City Garbage Dump Community need your help!

2 years ago I decided to spend a summer in Guatemala volunteering with an organization called Safe Passage, which works to educate and empower some of Guatemala City's poorest children living around the Guatemala City Garbage Dump. I quickly learned that there was something really special about this place, and that it was giving these children and their families opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have.

Safe Passage does this by paying for uniforms and fees so they can attend public school, and also providing:

One-on-one Tutoring

Homework Help

Food bags for the family

English

Sports

Arts and Music

Nutritious meals

Counseling and Health Services

Professional Development, assisting the program's graduates with finding jobs

For the children's parents there are entrepreneurship and adult literacy programs, parenting classes, and nutrition/fitness classes at the project. I've seen firsthand just how important Safe Passage is for these families, who at home oftentimes have dirt floors, no electricity or running water, and no food on the table. A large number of these families would not be able to send their children to school if not for Safe Passage's assistance.
 

In 2012, Safe Passage's programs enabled 550 children from this community to attend school, giving them the skills necessary to graduate high school, secure stable jobs, be self-sufficient, and to lead their families out of poverty in a dignified and permanent way. 

My cousin Vanessa and I are together running the Guatemala 21K and raising $2,400, the cost of sponsoring one child in the program for a year. Your donation will take only seconds and is fully tax-deductible. Make sure to ask your employer if he or she matches employee donations, as your donation may be worth even more.

I appreciate your support, and if you can afford to donate $10, $20, or $30 it would make a huge impact. $35 can pay for a child's school uniform for the year, and just $50 can provide a child with a year's worth of school supplies! It would be really important to me and to the kids at the project if you can help. If it's not something that you can afford to do right now, please share this page with others. Together we can help Safe Passage continue using education to break the cycle of poverty in the Guatemala City Garbage Dump Community!

Thank you so much,

Harry
