Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Esteban Torbar's work was prepared when Esteban Torbar was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Esteban Torbar is bringing life back to declining rural communities in Venezuela, using tourism as a tool to improve community infrastructure, clean up the environment, and create jobs. Through his organization, Eposak, visitors are vital partners with community leaders and entrepreneurs in reweaving social fabric, in turn protecting these areas from environmental degradation and economic decay by putting them on the map.
