|At RI Headquarters: The women of Chipastor!|
I am a grandmother paddling alone over 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala. Along the way I will be:
- telling the story of the children who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community
- honoring their entrepreneurial mothers
- talking about the success of the Safe Passage model school and
- raising funds for additional grades for the school.

This short video is the advice of a Safe Passage student about following your dreams. Pat Ellis, who has volunteered for so many years helping the English program at Safe Passage told me she was almost in tears as she watched and listened. "When the English program started, we had no idea how successful it could become." Being able to speak English has been so important for many Safe Passage graduates to get a good job. Thank you to the many volunteers who have worked so hard, and an even bigger thank you to the students who have studied so hard!
