Latinos Unidos Fundación
Latinos Unidos Fundación is a movement that believes that when we all come together, we can help create a better world. Latinos Unidos makes it easy for you to get involved and no you don't have to be Latin, you just have to want to help give back—whether at home, school or work—by offering resources to help you create positive social change in your community and around the world.
We want to empower change with resources that will help create a sustainable impact. We do this through domestic programs, but mostly internationally where we go through some of the poorest Villages in Latin America. Latinos Unidos Fundación is a social enterprise, that ensures to achieve a remarkable rate of financial efficiency, with an average of 95% of donations going directly to the people in need, we are strong believers that everyone deserves an opportunity to get an education, access to clean water, food, and medicines.
“Our programs help strengthen the economic development of the communities by training the individuals and also by helping them with job opportunities to be able to provide for their families."
This is our development model
If we’re going to talk seriously about ending child poverty, we need to talk about education. Giving a child an education is the best way to set them up for success and break the cycle of poverty. We are strong believers that every kid deserves an education, and we want to help facilitate that since kids are the future.
Children can only attend school if their parents have the financial means and time to invest in their education and their basic health. So we teach parents, often mothers, skills such as animal husbandry that help them generate an income and accrue savings. We bring free consultations and provide free medicines as well.
We want to help provide opportunities, not only for the children but also for the parents, so they can make an income, we do that by helping make sure that they know how to read and write and we train the men, carpentry, plumbing amongst some, and the women we train them how to sew and make patterns.
We provide emergency supplies to help people in the immediate aftermath of a disaster and in the days and weeks that follow. Our comfort kits contain basic personal supplies needed in the aftermath of a disaster, such as a toothbrush, deodorant and shampoo. Other emergency supplies could include shovels, and trash bags.
Children can only attend school if they are well fed. Hungry, malnourished children are at best inattentive, at worst, sick. Made possible by founding partner PotashCorp, we work with communities to provide programs that promote food security and improved agriculture, like school gardens and irrigation projects.
We help by providing kids school supplies, anything from books, to school uniforms or shoes, to make sure that no kid is left without an education because their parents can't afford their school supplies. We are strong believers that without eduction, these kids would not stand a chance to be able to succeed.
What Donors & Volunteers
We donated to Latinos Unidos Fundación, and we were so excited that they went the extra mile and gave us access to videos and photos of where our donations went. We are happy to help specially be part of helping kids with their education. Thank you guys!
We gave Latinos Unidos some medical supplies and were happy to see that it went directly to the people, they gave us access to see pictures and videos of the Medical Drive and see that the supplies we gave went straight to the people.
I donated some things that my kids didn't wear anymore, Latinos Unidos Fundacion made it very easy for me to get involved, and gave me access to some heartwarming videos of the people who received some of my items saying thank you to me. Cant wait to donate some more things.
Very happy to have been a Volunteer and help Latinos Unidos Fundacion with fundraising, they made sure to help guide me every step of the way. I will be happy to help them with fundraising again.
I went on a mission trip with Latinos Unidos, and was so excited to be part of a team who cares more about those in need, than others I had Volunteered for in the past, who use those trips to be on Vacation instead of it being about helping those in need.
I have been a Volunteer for Latinos Unidos a few times now, and very excited and honored to be a part of such a great foundation, and to see that they not only help those in need, but they also help others who want to be involved.
