Pedro De La Rosa '96

Story posted January 26, 2011

I have been working for Save the Children for the last six years. After spending 2.5 years in Sudan working on health programs, I moved to Nicaragua where I helped unify Save the Children USA, Norway and Canada into a single organization. I also met my future wife in Nicaragua and we got married on January 9, 2010. She is from Nicaragua and dedicated to international development like I am. We left to help in the emergency response in Aceh, Indonesia where we spent a year. We have since returned to Nicaragua where we are relaxing and enjoying some time off before heading to Colombia to start a new life. I will work with Save the Children UK as the country director, which presents a variety of challenges.
