Our Mission

We help children in the Guatemala City garbage dump community break the cycle of poverty through education, emphasizing life skills and perseverance in order to thrive in work and contribute to their community.

Safe Passage understands prudent fiscal management will allow us to expand essential health and educational programming where and when it is needed most.

That’s why we steward the resources entrusted to us and manage sustainable growth.


A top-rated nonprofit, we are proud to report that 77% of every dollar raised directly impacts the life of a child or family in Guatemala
