Remember Deb Walters from the Kayaking Grandmother post from last December? She will be in Annapolis... tomorrow, Thursday, October 23!
After breathing in the methane gas and walking through the mounds of rotting garbage which the children living around the Guatemala City Dump call home, 63-year-old Deb Walters decided to kayak 2,500 to make a difference.
Walters will be landing at City Dock in Annapolis on Thursday, October at 2 p.m. (precise timing can be tracked here).
Walters will share the stories of the children and mothers who scavenge through the dump in search of a better life for their families. Money raised on her year-long journey will fund the addition of grades to the Safe Passage School — known in Spanish as "Camino Seguro" — to assist more than 600 children living in poverty work toward a better life through education and social services.
While in Annapolis, Walters will speak with various groups and hopes to meet with the Guatemalan delegation. To learn more about Deb and her journey, visit KayakForSafePassageKids.org.
