We are pleased to share an interview with Raul Pineda, Save the Children's Sponsorship Manager in Central America.  Raul's work focuses on Save the Children's programs in Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatamala, and El Salvador.

  • What do you like most about working for Save the Children?
    • Save the Children represents the ideas that I like to defend. I identify myself with Save the Children’s mission and vision and working with a team who has that same vision is really encouraging and inspiring.
  • What is your greatest work-related challenge?
    • To build a bridge of understanding among peoples of different backgrounds and conditions.
  • Your message to new donors:
    • It is incredible how a small contribution helps to create a huge solidarity chain where everyone is pulling into the right direction to fight and eradicate injustice around the world.
  • Anything else that you’d like donors to know about you?
    • There is always a natural drive within yourself that directs you to do the right thing. This feeling is indescribable and the satisfaction at the end of your journey is so huge that any sacrifice you make is really insignificant compared to the real retributions you get: the smiles from children and from their happy parents. I love doing this job.
