The Guatemalan non-profit Safe Passage turns 15 years old this year.
From their latest newsletter:
In 1999, Hanley Denning founded Safe Passage in a tiny dilapidated church at the edge of the Guatemala City garbage dump and dedicated her life to empowering this community through education. Throughout 2014, we commemorate our 15th anniversary and look back at the progress made over 15 years of service and dedication to Hanley’s dream.
We send our volunteers in Guatemala on a one-day tour of Safe Passage’s programs in Guatemala City. The tour leaves from the city of Antigua, one of the cities where our programs are based, and takes volunteers by minivan to Guatemala City.
Here are some photos from my visit to Safe Passage in 2011:
