Daniel Chavez Moran's Foundation Addresses Poverty in Latin America
Brazil and Mexico are among the top 20 in the world in terms of gross domestic product according to World Bank statistics for 2009; however, inequality and poverty continue to be challenges throughout the 20 nations of Latin America.
Daniel Chavez Moran founded the non-profit organization Grupo Vidanta Foundation (Spanish: Fundación Grupo Vidanta) to help create a sustainable economic future for the 580 million people of Latin America. Known as Grupo Mayan Foundation when it began in 2005, its name was changed May 1, 2008 to better reflect the numerous institutions comprising the Grupo Vidanta.
Led by Roberto Russell and an international advisory board, the Grupo Vidanta Foundation seeks to generate awareness of the factors determining the gap in political, economic and social development that holds Latin America back from the standards of economic growth and welfare that characterize developed countries; promote the study of intra-Latin American relations and the strategies to integrate Latin America with the rest of the world; and actively influence the formulation of public policies designed to strengthen democracy, to promote economic and social development and to reduce social inequality in Latin America.
A non-profit organization, the Grupo Vidanta Foundation is funded entirely by donations from charitable individuals. Visit http://www.fundaciongrupovidanta.com/ for more information on Moran’s Grupo Vidanta Foundation.
