A Journey Begins…
The child of two young dreamers – Pablo, and Santi – wishing to go back to their roots in Latin America while doing their best to help improve its communities; hours of work and preparations; and a strong determination to push forward despite all obstacles along the way, Path for Change was born.
Path for Change is not an organization – it’s a “Cause on Wheels” that seeks to carve a driven path from Florida, USA to the Patagonia in Southern Argentina throughout which we will seek to volunteer our time, talents, resources, and experience to help improve a series of carefully chosen not-for-profit organizations throughout Central and South America. Ultimately, our goal is to help them in bringing about positive change that will improve the lives of the communities they serve.
The journey and its inherent list of unknowns are long. If the challenges preparing for this 14 to 18-month voyage were considerable, those that will come along the way will undoubtedly be even more so. Still, however lofty the goals we have set for ourselves are, we have no doubt that thanks to the powerful friendship that binds us, our friends and family that supports us, and the untold number of people along the way that will surely help us, we will be able to meet them.
Thank you for following our tracks in this exciting journey. For more information, feel free to explore the pages and links we have and will be creating. Within you’ll find information about each of us, our projects, our path, pictures, thoughts, ideas, and more. Most pictures of the trip will be posted on Santi’s Picasa Web Albums too so take a look at those as well. Keep well in mind, however, that this is not meant to be a finished product but a work in constant progress. As such it will be shaped by our experiences, those of the people we encounter along the way, and your own input. We encourage you to also subscribe to the RSS feed so that you can keep up to date on our journey.
So, dear reader, read on and if you’d like, contribute by writing your mind through your comments to help shape this path that is already much bigger than ourselves. By the way, if you have any ideas, projects, contacts, or anything that may help us help communities in Latin America, please contact us and we’ll look for ways to collaborate throughout and beyond our journey.
