The two sisters Alanna & Jennifer Tynan grew up in the small mountainous town of Nelson, Canada BC .Causing trouble and playfulness of the mountains, rivers and lakes. As children they had spent many winters in small villages in latin America, Mexico seeing firsthand a reality much different from their own. Though the culture was vibrant and the people were jovial, it was impossible to ignore the poverty.
They came to understand that things are done differently around the world but we recognized that basic needs transcend physical borders. The need for clean water. Sanitary living conditions. Access to health services. Basic education. Basic human rights that people in many areas of the world do not have the means to access. This lead for them to start the Latitude Project so that they could partner with communities and do what they can to help.
There Adventurous personalities lead them to go on ventures the love for campfire, spontaneous road trips and being part of something much bigger than there selves. They clame not to be a couple of Mother Theresas there imperfect humans with a desire to leave the world a little better than it was when they got here. There lovers of this fragile and wonderful life and staunch believers in the sentiment that to improve and enjoy the world are not mutually exclusive. And luckily,There not the only ones.
They explore, listen and respond. Communities express what they need and they work together to achieve that change. This way, projects are locally embraced and sustained over time. Each unique project is reflective of differing customs, cultures, and ever-changing needs. 100% of public donations fund projects on the ground without trickling through administration fees: from education facilities to medical initiatives, roofs to clean water, Latitude helps people meet their basic needs so they can live their own adventures.
