For the 3rd time, Sitawi is among the 100 best NGOs in Brazil

The Best NGOs Award from Instituto Doar, the largest in the third sector in Brazil, once again selected the Sitawi among the 670 registered organizations. The criteria for this selection were: governance, transparency, communication and financing. The awards ceremony will be online and will take place on December 10, 2020.

Since 2017, the partnership between Instituto Doar and the socio-environmental project agency O Mundo Que Quero recognizes the name of non-profit organizations that have good practices in several aspects. This year, the Award was also held in partnership with Ambev and with the technical support of researchers from Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV) and support from Fundação Toyota do Brasil. THE Sitawi was previously recognized among the Top 100 NGOs for 2017 and 2018. “Due to the pandemic, this year was even more challenging than ever for organizations working to take care of people, society, the environment. That's why the recognition of the Best NGOs Award this year is special”, says Marcelo Estraviz, director of Instituto Doar. 

In compliance with the restrictions resulting from the social isolation recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization) and the health secretariats at all levels of the federation, the event will be held for the first time in a virtual environment. The award ceremony is scheduled for December 10, starting at 8 pm (Brasília time), broadcast by YouTube and through the Futura channel website. In addition to the 100 best, the public will also know the highlights in the special categories, in addition to the best NGO among all.

”Recognitions like this motivate us to continue moving towards the advancement and dissemination of Social Finance in Brazil and Latin America as a whole. We moved forward with the feeling that, even in the midst of a complex situation of economic and health crisis, we are on the right path”, adds Renata Linhares, Relationship Manager at Sitawi.
