Latin American Foundation for the Future (LAFF) works through and with partner organisations to expand and improve their work with vulnerable children and young people.
The aim of the organisation is to provide financial and technical support, which will contribute towards increasing local partner’s capacity, self-sufficiency and sustainability. They work with children and young people in order to equip them with essential tools and guarantee that they can access better education and employment opportunities, which enable them to build a better future for themselves.
The Blackwood Engineering Trust donation helped 29 girls in impoverished rural villages in the Andes to access secondary education and change their future prospects. Specific help was given for school uniforms, fees, materials and transport costs.
