“My experience traveling the country, walking with a backpack and a cap, as an Ecuadorian geologist does, allowed me to look at my country from a different perspective, understanding the value of connecting with people, from appreciating their knowledge and maintaining the simplicity to create friendships for life.
I understood the need to build an organization specialized in creating alliances and connections between government entities, the private sector and communities to create sustainable and impactful solutions. After more than 12 years leading the Curipamba project, I was able to understand that the most powerful way to solve social and environmental problems is to innovate by listening to people and generating value for local actors”.
