Safe Passage: Combating poverty through education

Camino Seguro´s mission is to empower 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. We share the vision that within a safe and caring environment, every child participates in an integrated program that fosters optimism, good health, educational achievement, self-esteem, and confidence. Children and parents discover that, through their own efforts, they can move beyond poverty.

Join us in our efforts to provide hope and opportunities for the Safe Passage children and their families.

Mayan Dances by indigenous children from Nuevo Amanecer
Aug 29 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Mayan Dances by indigenous children from Nuevo Amanecer  @ Rainbow Cafe

New Dawn is a Guatemalan NGO focused on community development in San Andres Itzapa, Chimaltenango since 1989. They promote health, education and the strengthening of indigenous leaders in the community. They provide learning support and a feeding programme for children and young adults at their school based in the director’s own home.

Their vision is to facilitate self-sufficiency within poorer families and allow them to empower themselves to change their quality of life through education. They also seek to preserve and strengthen the cultural identity of the indigenous Mayan people.

Come and see the show and learn more about this project and the Mayan culture!
