Sharing with the American School

On Saturday January 18th, 40 1st and 2nd graders from Safe Passage were invited to share a morning with the students of American School of Guatemala and their parents.

Music, educational activities and games were waiting when the kids arrived to the American School facilities. Our children were happy to be outdoors and share with kids their own age.

Cuentame las Gradas

The matchbox car rides the edge of the table, flirting with a 4-foot fall to the floor. A look of concentration is etched on Gaspar’s face as he navigates the car, the puttering of the engine escaping softly from his lips. As I enter his classroom his head stays down, totally absorbed in the perilous journey happening at his fingertips. I tap him on the shoulder and his face lights up, “Now?” he asks.
