Salvador de AndaSalvador de Anda
Juárez, México

Born in Juárez of Native American (Huichol) descent, Salvador studied in a bilingual, bicultural setting in the Juárez-El Paso metropolitan area, Salvador is one of those rare individuals who has been able to blend his academic background (having earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Marketing from the University of Texas at El Paso) with his professional career and voluntary interests.

Specializing in US-México border urban and social development, Salvador served as the Director of City Development for Ciudad Juárez from 2003 to 2005. Since then, he has worked as a consultant for the BiNational “Border Environment Cooperation Commission” developing urban agriculture in the Juárez area, and addressing environmental problems along the US–México border that emanate from the unpaved roads that run the entire length of the 1500-mile corridor between Matamoros-Brownsville and Tijuana-San Diego.

On a voluntary basis, Salvador has served as the Mexican Coordinator of the United Nations program “Habitat for Humanity,” with a focus on enhancing public transportation in this area. He oversaw the development of dozens of community centers, Day Care Centers and parks in the poorest neighborhoods of Juárez. He serves as the voluntary President of the Council of “A Ganar” (a job training through sports program sponsored by the InterAmerican Development Bank, the Clinton Foundation and the Carlos Slim Foundation), as President of the Juárez chapter of “Partners of the Americas,” as a Member of the Board of Directors of the “Santa Maria Asociación Civil” (with programs ranging from shelters for homeless children, day care centers, community kitchens, hospitals and schools), as a volunteer with several NGOs (including Fundación Comunitaria de la Frontera Norte, several Rotary Clubs, the Red Cross, Green Cross, Tenda de Cristo, and others in the Juárez area), etc.

Father of four, his source of greatest pride are his children. Salvador's zealous advocacy for the enhancement of quality of life issues for Ciudad Juárez, his lengthy experience working in México's public and private sectors, and his enormous enthusiasm for the work of the 911 FUND throughout México make him a wonderful additional to the International Advisory Board of the 911 FUND.
