Glasswing International is an independent, non-profit organization based in San Salvador, El Salvador. Our aim is to transform communities in Central America by leveraging and mobilizing human, financial, and material resources from companies, government, and beneficiaries. History In 2007, Celina de Sola, along with her brother Diego, and her husband, Ken Baker, founded Glasswing International in San Salvador, El Salvador. The concept was simple: foster change by investing in a community’s existing strengths and resources – its infrastructure and its people. After spending many years traveling the world as a humanitarian relief worker, and working as a social worker and public health specialist, Celina felt compelled to return home and make a difference in Central America. Drawing on her experiences, she saw an opportunity to combine an international perspective with a hands-on, grassroots approach to transform vulnerable communities across the region. Diego, who was living in El Salvador, working in the private sector, and serving as a World Economic Forum Global Fellow, felt it was a critical time to find a better way to push individuals, businesses, and community members to learn to work together to promote progress. He saw Glasswing as a vehicle to empower communities and create opportunities for individuals to take responsibility and be agents of change for a brighter future. After years of working as an executive in the private, public, and non-profit sectors, Ken believed making a lasting impact and sustainably addressing development challenges was best made through the creation of a strong, local organization. Glasswing was built as an innovative, local organization with a global perspective and a commitment to empowerment, local solutions, and efficiency.
