From a young age, Julio Salazar felt called to create opportunities for the people of his home country, Guatemala. He faced challenges along the way, but his dream eventually became reality when he started the Meso Foundation 25 years ago. Thanks to his tenacity and vision, the foundation now empowers Guatemalans of all ages through education and social business programs that have a profound impact on the course and quality of their lives.
