Urban Age Award 2008
Our actions depend on other people's ability to give. They are in fact limited by that fact, because we are a non-profit organization where our profits are measured in social gain. We are also a small grassroots organization with a very small administration, running on an even smaller budget. We don't have the millions needed for hi-class publicity campaigns in the media, to break through the giving barrier.
Nevertheless, earlier this month we were judged as one of the 12 best projects of São Paulo for the esteemed Deutsches Bank Urban Age Award 2008 in strong competition with 133 organizations. We did not win the $100.000 prize as we had hoped, but we were very proud to be among the 12 finalists.
On the award certificate we received at the prize giving ceremony are the following words:
We certify that the REDE CULTURAL BEIJA-FLOR (Hummingbird Cultural Network) distinguishes itself among the 12 best projects of the Deutsches Bank Urban Age Award São Paulo 2008.
Thank you to all our supporters for helping to make this possible!
