This episode is one that really looks into HOW to do socially transformative work in societies that are seen as extremely difficult and violent. My guest is Celina de Sola, co-founder and President of Glasswing International, an organization that addresses the root causes and consequences of poverty and violence in 12 countries across Latin America. They do this through community-based education and health, as well as youth empowerment. 

Celina has 25 years of experience working in international development, as well as in humanitarian settings. 

Our conversation digs into the work of Glasswing International, her journey to being a part of starting the organization, and the impact the organization has had since then. We also talk about focusing on and truly SEEING people when working with social change, about trauma and hope. Celina also shares her best advice to other changemakers and social entrepreneurs. 

I’m so grateful for this meaningful conversation and all the wisdom that Celina shares with us. I hope you find it helpful too!
