Finding the latest news on Vidanta Foundation activities is now easier with the recent redesign and relaunch of the Vidanta Foundation website. Founded by Daniel Jesus Chavez Moran and now headed by its president, Dr. Roberto Russell, the Vidanta Foundation is a non-profit institution dedicated to the promotion of the social sciences and culture of Latin America.
The Foundation’s new website is rich with information, photographs and color, and includes interactive social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter. Readers can find all the latest news on the Foundation’s projects, seminars and publications produced in partnership with international organizations and institutions of higher learning throughout the Americas.
Prominent on the site is information about the annual Vidanta Foundation Prize recognizing and supporting outstanding work carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean to reduce poverty and inequality, and combat discrimination. The 2011 deadline for applications is May 31, 2011. Information about last year’s top prize winner from Daniel Chavez Moran.
