Saúde Criança is recognized as the best NGO in Latin America
The year of 2012 forecasts good news. At the beginning of the Brazilian summer vacation in early February, news from wintry Switzerland heated the hearts of Chiquinho´s friends: Associação Saúde Criança (Child Health Association) was ranked first in Latin America and 38th in the world among the 100 best NGOs listed by The Global Journal. The Swiss magazine, a new publication dedicated to innovative projects of global interest, recognizes the importance of social organizations as agents of change. The magazine based its research on the criteria of innovation, impact, efficiency, strategy, financial management, transparency, sustainability and peer review (NGO and donor perceptions / awards and recognition).
About the Skoll World Forum
Last week I was at Oxford participating in Skoll World Forum. The subject was “Large Scale Change – ecosystems, networks and collaborative action.”
I had the honor to participate in the “Holistic Solutions or Mission Creep: Is the Risk Worth the Reward?” session, along with Sébastien Marot, from Friends-International, and Amithaba Sadangi, from International Development Enterprises (India), whose mediator was the canadian journalist David Bornstein. At this session we talked about innovative processes, the dificulties that we face and the decisions that we need to make, in order to increase, in large scale, our impact and the relevant risks.
The archbishop Desmond Tutu, who was the great name of the event, spoke with brilliance and much faith.
With much joy, I saw Rebecca Onie, from Health Leads, being elected Skoll Foundation’s social entrepreneur. Rebecca, a young lawyer, former Harvard student, and working at Boston, came to the same conclusion of Saúde Criança – that the medical act does not make sense if there is no complementation of what is done at the hospital, and that the major cause of illness in the whole world is poverty. Reinforcing our work, which was a pioneer in the world, she confirmed that it is necessary an integrated vision of health, for this to be effective.
It was rewarding to participate in this Forum, a real exchange of experiences.
