While I was in Curitiba I worked for the microfinance section of a nonprofit that also had areas working in education/training and fair trade. The fair trade section of the organization is called Solidarium, and they recently became finalists for the Unreasonable Institute’s Fellowship program. The program brings fellows from all over the world to the United States for an intensive six week training, where they are also connected to mentors, investors, and a plethora of resources. I think that Solidarium would benefit immensely from participating as a fellow– so this is where you come in! The first 25 of the 45 finalists to raise $8,000 become fellows. However, during the first week all of the donations are limited to a maximum of $10 so that they can prove they’re able to mobilize people all over the world, and show the expanse of their network. Let’s show Brazil they have friends and supporters all over the world!
Please consider making a donation! You can learn more about the project and donate here: http://marketplace.unreasonableinstitute.org/ventures/view/54/
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me. Please send this to anyone you think might be interested!
