Juan Carlos Pérez Borja

Ecuador

Prior to starting Enseña Ecuador, Juan Carlos worked in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. He first interned at an Ecuadorian NGO that worked on child labor eradication at local landfills, managing multiple projects and building the organization´s first ever electronic database.

After graduating from Grinnell College (Iowa) with a BA in Economics and Global Development Studies, Juan Carlos moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to work for a non-medical health care provider, where he was in charge of all the financials for three different offices, including budgeting, planning, accounting, and payroll processes.

In 2012, Juan Carlos returned to Ecuador to begin developing a strategy for Enseña Ecuador, which led to the organization’s establishment in May 2013.
