Mauricio Quijano

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

Mauricio began his career in the private sector teaching business classes at the University of Central America José Simeon Cañas (UCA) in El Salvador for nearly a decade. He was then drawn into working in the social sector through a university project creating business opportunities in marginalized communities. He then spent two years working for the Salvadoran Ministry of Labor in La Libertad, and earned his Master’s in the Management and Promotion of Local Development in Spain. “Each time we work together it is inspiring,” Mauricio reflects on his work with Cristosal’s Citizen Formation School. “People have the power to change your personality. To make you more kind and feel more joy.”
