What is your favorite project with PWW?

My favorite projects are implementing sanitation in schools.

Tell us a little bit about your family.

I suffer from a case of “dispersed family”! I have four children. I live in San José de Colinas, Santa Barbara with my youngest son (3 years old). My other three children (16, 12 and 8) live in Tegucigalpa. I try to be with them all as much as possible, so I regularly travel between the locations.

My favorite activity, when not working, is being with my children at home, repairing the car, going out on the ATV with them, and watching animated films before going to bed.

What is your favorite food?

Beans, Cuajada (a milk curd cheese product) and corn tortilla tostadas.

Anything else you want people to know about you?

I like my free time and try to make the most of it.

We invite you to come to Honduras and meet Mauricio, in person. We are grateful for his dedication to PWW, his commitment to improving processes, and his passion to bring safe water and sanitation to all.
