On Tuesday, March 23rd 2021, our lunch program speaker will be Luis Fernando Sanabria, General Manager of Fundación Paraguaya. He will be talking to us about the self-sustaining schools his foundation has created in Paraguay.
If his name sounds familiar, it's because he's also the father of past Rotary exchange student Juanfe Sanabria. Luis Fernando Sanabria has over 30 years of experience working at Fundación Paraguaya (FP) in institution building, microfinance, and social development.
He oversees the operations of all FP programs by leading a team of 500 people to implement poverty elimination programs, entrepreneurial education and self-sustainable schools both in Paraguay and in the other countries. He also exerts direct supervision to the office in Tanzania and programs in countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia where FP works.
He regularly participates in major international events such as the Microcredit Summit, the Skoll Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, FOROMIC, Accion International Network and Junior Achievement Network Meetings at which he has given lectures and presentations on FP achievements.
During 2012-2013 he served as advisor to the Social Cabinet of the President of Paraguay for the development of the plan Public-Private Partnership for the Eradication of Extreme Poverty (APEX).
This meeting will be all-virtual.
