Can I go on for a bit on how thankful I am that "ambassadors" from Safe Passage took the time to talk to the girls?
These are folks who have day jobs (3 are teachers!) and still had the passion to volunteer to come on up, (after a full day at school), and talk to our small group on the inspiring work Safe Passage does.
People are good.
Speaking of full days at school; and the girls? They just amaze me.
For an hour and a half they listened and watched while the Safe Passage folks explained to them why people scour the dump for recyclables and some scraps of food, (or anything they may be able to re-purpose or get a little money for), how their programs provide food, education, safety and hope for some of Guatemala City's most vulnerable children and, importantly, provides opportunity and hope for their future.
They are so geared up to sell some worry dolls.
Thank- you Safe Passage!
