Our series is a vehicle for people at home to move through these experiences with us, allowing viewers to see the positive change that their donations and involvement have made possible.
The Latitude Project empowers communities of Latin America by providing the means for people to develop, build, and maintain basic human necessities such as: clean water systems, educational facilities, and safe, comfortable housing while transparently portraying the whole picture.
