Carmelo and his immediate family arrived in Canada in 1992 as refugees from war torn Guatemala. Today, thanks to his 8 years of managerial experience and St. Clair College education, Carmelo applies his knowledge and corporate structuring skills to serving on the Board of Directors. Throughout his professional career, Carmelo has been certified to train, coach, and mentor those hoping to attain a leadership position.
Guatemala Hope and Carmelo share a strong passion and commitment to rebuilding his first home of El Triunfo, and surrounding area. Guatemala Hope has directly elevated the quality of life his family has in Guatemala through their Development, Agricultural, Education, and Health projects.
Carmelo is grateful, honored, and humbled, to be a part of Guatemala Hope. This is just the beginning of more great things to come.
