Raíces Vivas is a foundation that seeks to preserve and promote traditional cultures throughout the communities of Latin America. We strive to acheive this using development models which allow social and economic sustainability. We recognize each community has its own unique identity rich in history; thus we will promote organizations and local leaders as protagonists of their own development. We are interested in connecting culture with educational spaces, the creative industry, entrepreneurship, self-management, network generation, and local identity.
