Welcome to Philanthropy - Grupo Vidanta
Grupo Vidanta has formed two foundations. One is called Fundation Delia Moran and the other is Fundacion Grupo Vidanta. Both are foundations with values and goals designed benefit the people of Mexico and South America.
"In 2002, Fundacion Delia Moran A.C. was created in honor of a beloved community teacher that dedicated her life to helping Mexican children survive the constant battle many face with poverty and ignorance. In each location where Grupo Vidanta properties are built, shelter homes for children have been or will be established.
The company also contributes to the local communities in a variety of ways by donating food, clothing, shelter, education, as well as medical and psychological services. The main goal behind this foundation is to ensure that these children grow up in a healthy environment, while they hone the abilities necessary to become responsible and productive guests of society."

"The Grupo Vidanta Foundation is a non-profit institution whose primary aim is the promotion of social sciences and culture with a focus on Latin America to the benefit of all with a special interest in academia and policy-making. The Foundation began its activities in 2005 under the name of Grupo Mayan Foundation. As of May 1, 2008, it adopted its present name in order to better reflect the situation that today characterizes the numerous institutions comprising the Grupo Vidanta, among which the Grupo Mayan is one of the most important.
The primary goal of the Grupo Vidanta Foundation is the promotion of social sciences and culture to the benefit of all.
Our major aims are to:
* Generate and spread 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. .
* Actively influence the formulation of public policies designed to strengthen democracy, promote economic and social development and reduce social inequality in Latin America." (Source - http://wwwfundaciongrupovidanta.com/new/en/index.html)
