Martin’s life was deeply impacted after he was forced to flee Buenos Aires due to the disappearance of his cousin and Argentina’s political turmoil. This has led Martin to have a special sensitivity and attention to any social and political injustices around the globe, promoting democracy and freedom.
Through the Varsavsky Foundation, he has championed several initiatives such as:
Helping Ukrainian refugees rebuild their lives in Europe through access to financial tools, emergency cash, and integration programs.
Educ.ar in Argentina and Educarchile.cl in Chile, democratizing and modernizing the educational systems in both countries. $11M was donated in 2000.
