La Vida

Charity description

La Vida logo
La Vida distributes grants for projects such as student scholarships, medical training, school expansions and community health education. La Vida has an impressively low cost base with 97% of the funds raised going directly to our projects. Everyone working for the charity, including the trustees and executive committee, gives their time on a voluntarily basis.

In 2006, La Vida was initially registered as a charity in the UK to be able to raise funds for the 'Ponseti Technique Clubfoot Project' in Brazil. After successfully raising over £27,500 in just over two months, we decided to look for other projects to support across Latin America.

Subsequently, we have found more projects in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru and Mexico which we intend to support over the next few years.

La Vida has successfully raised over £500k over 10 years through sponsorship, our annual La Vida fundraising event and direct donations. The funding we have deployed will have directly impacted the lives of over 50,000 disadvantaged children and their families in Latin America.

Charity No: 1115796
