Safe Passage is a non profit organization that provides education and social services to the community of the Guatemala City Garbage dump.

We offer public tours in English every Thursday and Spanish tours every Wednesday, you can meet us in Antigua or Guatemala City. Private tours are encouraged.

Seeing is believing. Tour our program in Guatemala City and see firsthand who we are and what we do!

After meeting a volunteer who was working for Safe Passage on a previous trip to Guatemala, I went home and did a little research about the Guatemala Dumps. After watching a documentary on YouTube called "Children of the 4th World". We were moved and wanted to help. Through a series of emails, we made arrangements to take a tour of... More

I visited Camino Seguro on a study abroad trip through my university looking at Child Welfare in Guatemala. It was a full day trip filled with emotional experiences as we watched how the community grew around the dump and the work of the founder of Camino Seguro. Our visit started in Antigua and we worked our way to Guatemala City.... More

We went on the tour with safe passage today and it was amazing - as the title says, words can't do it justice but I can try. We left Antigua around 8am and began the tour with a video about the charity before driving to Guatemala City. Our tour guide Matt was great and very passionate about the charity itself... More

This is an exploration of the hardships of many Guatemalan families. These are the people who live in an area surrounding the city's garbage dump. These people are forced to make a living by picking through endless piles of garbage looking for anything they can sell. Safe Passage if a non-profit trying to change the lives of these people. There... More

If you doubt that one person can make a difference, visit Camino Seguro, a project started by a young American woman. Camino Seguro provides educational, social and medical services for families - parents & children - who work under terrible conditions in the enormous Guatemala City garbage dump. Particularly impressive is Creamos, an off-shoot of Camino Seguro. At Creamos, women... More

I would highly recommend a tour of Camino Seguro for anyone traveling in Guatemala. I took the tour in March 2015 and our guide, Matt, was enthusiastic in showing us the premises and took great care in answering our questions. The work of this organization and the story of its founder, Hanley Denning, are profoundly moving. This experience will be... More
