Location: Fundación Fabretto (Spain).
“12 years ago, I traveled to Nicaragua and I was impressed with the very important work that Fabretto was doing, as well as the significance of education in the development of a country.”
When Alicia was presented with the opportunity to join the Fabretto team in Spain, she did not hesitate. She believes Fabretto is without a doubt an organization that stays close to the people it supports and directly impacts its beneficiaries.
During her last trip to Nicaragua, Alicia met a SAT student who really surprised her. He had created his own cooperative with a friend and was developing a business initiative to sell coffee in his community. A year later he was granted a university scholarship. Thanks to Fabretto’s secondary school program, this student was given a unique opportunity to improve his future. Read his story here.
As Director of Fabretto in Spain, Alicia coordinates all Fabretto activities in Spain and strengthens Fabretto’s largest European base of supporters.She holds a Masters in European Affairs from the College of Europe and an undergraduate degree in Law. Before joining Fabretto’s leadership team, Alicia worked as Development Officer for the Club of Madrid, which works to strengthen democracy and respond to political crises and conflict situations.
