LATA Foundation

The LATA Foundation, LATA’s charitable arm, works to support social and environmental projects throughout Latin America. Their projects are helping to transform lives, providing clean water, dental or medical support and practical training to provide people with new skills in Mexico, Central and South America.

The LATA Foundation was set up by the Latin America Travel Association, bringing together tourist boards, airlines, tour operators, hotels, ground agents, travel publishers, PR companies and the press to put something back into the countries where they all work.

The LATA Foundation is run entirely by volunteers both in the UK and in Latin America. Most of them are acknowledged specialists in Latin America with a background in the travel industry. They have close links with LATA and have contacts on the ground in Latin America to be our eyes and ears locally, to help us identify new projects and to make sure that our projects are well run and kept on track.
