Daniel Chavez Moran Unveils New Vidanta Foundation Website

Bold graphics and a clean, easy-to-read format are just some of the features of the recently redesigned website for the Vidanta Foundation, the non-profit institution founded by Daniel Jesus Chavez Moran and headed by the internationally recognized Dr. Roberto Russell.

The primary mission of the Vidanta Foundation is the promotion of social sciences and culture to the benefit of all with a special interest in academia and policymaking. The Foundation is entirely self-financed with resources contributed by the member shareholders of the companies comprising the Grupo Vidanta. Founded by Chavez Moran as the Daniel Chavez Moran Foundation, then renamed the Grupo Mayan Foundation, in 2005, the institution adopted the name Grupo Vidanta Foundation in 2008, since simplified to the Vidanta Foundation.

The newly launched website includes the latest updates on the projects, seminars and publications sponsored by the Foundation and produced through a partnership with international organizations and institutions of higher learning throughout the Americas, including the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University, and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, in the United States.

New social media tools, such as Facebook and Twitter, provide readers with up-to-the-minute reports on Vidanta Foundation activities, including the imminent May 31, 2011, deadline for the 2011 Vidanta Foundation Prize. Awarded annually, in  collaboration with the Organization of American States Secretary General, the Vidanta Foundation Prize recognizes and supports outstanding work carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean to reduce poverty and inequality, and combat discrimination.
