Our Goal: Empowering people and transforming lives in a place of great poverty

Camino Segruo / Safe Passage is a top-rated charity working in Guatemala City for more than 20 years. We bring hope, education, and opportunity  to the children and families making their lives around the City’s garbage dump. Professional educators and passionate volunteers make their way to Guatemala to make a difference through Camino Seguro / Safe Passage.


In the last 20 years Camino Seguro / Safe Passage has had a large number of sponsors, supporters and volunteers from all over Europe. Many of them are still loyally connected to the project, but some others are no longer in contact. We want to change this with the new European Circle of Friends. We want to bring old and new friends together in our membership program. We strive for mutual exchange, we want to start actions together in favor of this important educational project and we want to have fun together. Regular meeting are planned via video conferencing, but also “live” in various European cities. This initiative is brought into being by the German association Camino Seguro e. V.
