Daniela is the director and founder of a hybrid social venture, PEPY, which is an educational development organization funded through adventure and service-learning tours. PEPY’s tagline “Adventurous Living, Responsible Giving,” highlights the dual mission of the organization: to offer tours which expose travelers to development issues and empower them to become more educated donors and to fund and implement development programs which improve access to quality education in rural Cambodia. Daniela believes that social entrepreneurship is a key to further improvements in the development sector and is an active speaker and blogger on this topic. PEPY Tours has won the National Geographic’s Geo-tourism Challenge Award as well as Notre Dame’s Social Venture Business Plan Competition, among other honors. Daniela, a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, has lived and worked in Asia for the past eight years and is based in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
