Welcome to Discovering Latin America

Discovering Latin America is a charitable organisation, which seeks to improve the livelihood of marginalised people in Latin America, by sharing culture, arts and creativity from the region with diverse audiences worldwide.

At the present time, we operate in the UK, Brazil and Spain, raising funds to finance development projects in the countries of Latin America by presenting a wide range of cultural events and educational activities.
