SITAWI among the best NGOs in Brazil

Join us in celebrating SITAWI´s recognition as one of the best social organizations in Brazil! The first edition of the Best NGOs Award, an initiative of Instituto Doar and Revista Época, placed SITAWI in the list of Brazilian NGOs that stand out for their transparency, efficiency, quality of management and good governance practices in their areas of activity.MOED_2017_small

“Being among the best NGOs in Brazil reflects our efforts to become a reference in effectiveness and innovation among organizations seeking social and environmental impact. Awards such as this contribute to our mission of mobilizing capital for positive social and environmental impact, enhancing transparency and bringing more credibility to our peers and partners,” commented Luiza Coimbra, from the Communications team.

In total, 1,560 organizations signed up for the selection and the top 100 were chosen by an executive committee based on the performance presented. A commission made up of representatives of Revista Época, Instituto Doar and the Center for Public Administration and Government Studies of the Getúlio Vargas Foundation evaluated the organizations on five pillars: cause and strategy; representation and responsibility; management and planning; financing strategy; and communication and accountability.
