Vaga Lume Association
Vaga Lume Association

Vaga Lume Association is a Brazilian non-profit organization founded in 2001 grounded in the belief that investing in people is the best way to transform a reality. Its mission is to create opportunities for cultural exchange by reading, writing and orality, valuing the empowerment of people and rural communities of the Brazilian Legal Amazon region. Vaga Lume works in 160 rural communities (indigenous, riverside, roadside, rural settlement people or quilombolas - Brazilian with African descent) of 23 municipalities in the Brazilian Legal Amazon region, which encompasses nine federal states (Acre, Amapa, Amazonas, Maranhao, Mato Grosso, Para, Rondonia, Roraima and Tocantins), occupies 59% of the Brazilian territory and has 20 million people (12% of the Brazilian population). Despite the fact that education and culture are basic social rights, protected by the Brazilian Constitution and under human rights international treaties ratified by Brazil, its access and implementation in the Amazon region are very limited. It is one of the poverty zones in Brazil - with a GDP per capita 30% lower than the national value - where 42% of the population survives with less than US$ 5.00 a day. Due to the outstanding impact of Vaga Lume's work in the region, the organization is recognized by many international and national awards such as the Juscelino Kubitschek Award of Merit for Regional Development in Latin America and the Caribbean given by the Inter-American Development Bank (2009); the Millennium Development Goals Award, conferred by the United Nations and the Brazilian government (2005); the Vivaleitura Award, from the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Education (2008); and the Chico Mendes Environment Award, given by the Ministry of Environment (2006 and 2008). In 2011, Vaga Lume received its most important recognition: the 4th place at the Intercultural Innovation Award, conferred by United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the BMW Group. As an awardee, in 2012, Vaga Lume was welcomed to the World Intercultural Facility for Innovation (WIFI), a network formed by the UNAOC, the BMW Group and the ten 2011 winners. Through this network, the UNAOC and the BMW Group challenged all winners to replicate and scale up their actions to promote intercultural dialogue and offered training, consultancy and institutional support to assist organizations to accomplish such results.

Central Unica das Favelas

CUFA (Central Union of Favelas) is a Brazilian organization recognized both nationally and internationally in the fields of social assistance, sports and recreation and community development which has existed for nearly 20 years. It was initially created through the unification of young people from favelas, mostly black youth, who sought means of expression.\nCUFA promotes activities in the fields of education, recreation, sports, culture and citizenship, such as graffiti, DJ workshops, break, rap, audiovisual media, street basketball, and literature, among other social projects, courses and classes. CUFA also promotes, produces, distributes and transmits hip hop culture through publications, records, videos, radio programs, shows, contests, musical festivals, cinema, art workshops, exhibits, debates, and conferences. These activities are all mediums used by CUFA as instruments to promote integration, development and social inclusion. In this way, through its particular approach, CUFA intends to expand its reach and means of communication and expression, disseminating awareness and opportunities among underprivileged segments of the population through professional qualification workshops and a series of other activities which raise the self esteem of marginalized youth by opening opportunities for knowledge and new perspectives. \n\nActing as a cultural production and sports recreation hub since 1999, through partnerships, endorsements and other forms of support, CUFA educates and informs citizens of Rio de Janeiro as well as the other 26 Brazilian states and the Federal District, and is present as well in countries such as Bolivia, Germany, Chile, Hungary, Italy and the United States. The CUFA team is mostly integrated by young people who were trained through professionalization workshops promoted by the organization and are themselves mostly residents of underprivileged communities.
