We’re looking for dynamic, committed and creative people to join our Fundraising and Events Team at the LATA Foundation.

The roles we undertake include fundraising, communications, donor relations, arranging events and finding sponsorship.
It is now widely accepted that ensuring opportunities for women not only helps them to achieve their potential, it also tackles some of the root causes of poverty and inequality – improving the lives of women, their dependents and the local community.

As we reach the final week of the #PERU25for25 challenge, we have been absolutely bowled over by the response to this campaign. On Monday 22 March, we reached an incredible milestone of £10,000 with 40 supporters participating in the challenge to walk or run 25 miles (the length of the Inca Trail) during the month of March to support out-of-work Inca Trail porters and their family with monthly essential food parcels.
Today the LATA Foundation, LATA’s charitable arm, has launched the PERU 25for25 Challenge to raise funds for out-of-work Inca Trail porters in Peru.
Christmas is a time for giving and there has never been a time when the communities in Latin America that rely so heavily on tourism have needed your help more.
In June 2020, the LATA Foundation set up its emergency Covid-19 appeal in a response to the devastating impact the global pandemic is having in Latin America. The appeal provides small grants to a range of charities and organisations that have been severely impacted as a result of the global pandemic.
We are delighted to announce that the LATA Foundation we will be attending LATA Expo 2020! We’ll be there to tell you all about the work we’ve been doing and how we can work together to support our projects in Latin America.
