Teresita Eguiguren

Teresita started her Research position in 2023 in an Effective philanthropy project, investigating grantmaking best practices to inform clients and contribute to the improvement of their efforts. This sparked her interest in philanthropy, especially as she saw it as an area with great potential for development in the LATAM region.

Teresita brings more than 5 years in the charity sector, having research and project management experience in the NGO and Public Sector of Chile as well as in an International Organisation (United Nations). Most of her professional experience has been tackling complex problems related to vulnerable populations, with a special focus in children and youth.

She is particularly interested in qualitative research and evaluation. During her MSc in Development Studies at UCL, she dived into participatory research methods, being part of a research team that worked revitalizing public spaces in Indonesia alongside with an NGO. As part of her dissertation, Teresita explored how to create meaningful spaces of participation for children in the policy-making process.
