Encouraging a Philanthropy Culture
As part of our quest for improvement to children’s health in Brazil, we believe that private institutions, social organizations, and the population as a whole, really have a great potential of having an influence on the Government and of making changes materialize. Apart from joint action to carry out projects, we also identify a need to promote a culture of philanthropy, still closely linked to one-off efforts in the case of situations of calamity.
Changing this situation would require a continuous group effort from reputable institutions, and this is the reason why we act in partnership with other organizations of this segment in order to make philanthropy stronger in Brazil.
