Our youngest students and those who care for them at the Escuelita received an early holiday gift this fall – a dishwasher and solar water heater! These may not seem like top items on every child’s wish list, but they promise to go a long way in promoting good health and happier kitchen staff.

“Kids!” That was most common response from our current Safe Passage volunteers when asked about why they came to serve at Safe Passage. The reason they come to work each day is simple: it’s our incredible and inspiring students! During a weekly volunteer meeting, we asked the group to participate in a “quick write” where I asked questions and gave them 30 seconds to scribble their responses down, (making for a few illegible entries that needed to be clarified), and we wanted to share their responses with all of you!

When I first realized that I wanted to return to Guatemala after 12 years away, I knew that it was the right choice for me at this time in my life. I so enjoyed my year-and-a-half in Quetzaltenango in 2000-2001, and I knew that it was time to return and experience the beauty of the country and its people. With some research and a referral from a friend, I came to Safe Passage as a Support Team leader.
