The Latin America and Caribbean Affinity Group was created in 2017 before the WINGS Regional Meeting for Latin America and the Caribbean in Cartagena, Colombia. The purpose of the Group is to provide a flexible framework of exchange for philanthropy support organizations in the region. Its first role is to gather and articulate different experiences from members, exchange relevant information and initiatives, create a space for peer-learning and promote connections.
Chairs: Maria Carolina Suarez from IVPC and Andrea Hanai from IDIS.
