Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Luis Aguilar's work was prepared when Luis Aguilar was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Luis Aguilar is reviving rural Guatemalan villages socially, culturally, and economically by creating and maintaining a platform for communication between the communities and their emigrant family members abroad. This platform also facilitates remittances to create jobs in the communities and catalyzes migrant-sponsored development projects that allow the villages to prosper from their cultural and natural heritage.
