La Vida is  a small, effective, 100% volunteer run Latin American charity supporting communities’ health, education and environment

Founded in 2006, La Vida is a small, effective, 100% volunteer-run UK-registered charity which supports grassroots projects in the fields of education and health throughout Latin America. La Vida distributes grants in areas such as youth development, supports primary and secondary education initiatives, school expansions and community health and environmental programmes. We have an impressively low cost base with over 98% 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 voluntary basis. We have a rigorous governance process and go to great lengths to ensure funds are properly allocated and well monitored and have a significant, long-term local impact.
