A Powerful and Agile Brazilian SGO Empowering Youth and Adults Out of Social risk

It is a challenge for any SGO to make its way in any ranking by thedotgood. When the Ramacrisna Institute came on thedotgood’s radar screen, we were certainly wondering whether it belonged to the old-timer category of charities providing care and support to their communities. Well, we had no chance to follow that train of thought.

When the Ramacrisna Institute came on thedotgood’s radar screen, we were certainly wondering whether it belonged to the old-timer category of charities providing care and support to their communities. Well, we had no chance to follow that train of thought. The Ramacrisna Institute – located in Rua Mestre Ramacrisna in Belo Horizonte, Brazil – believes, for six decades on, in people’s potential, and aims at multiplying their chances. Except there is more action than belief to that.

Their work has affected the lives of nearly two million people in 13 cities that belong to the metropolitan area of Belo Horizonte, North-East Brazil. By offering professional qualification courses for young people and adults in situations of personal and social risk, the Institute is in a position to foster the development of each participant’s ethical and professional values and capabilities. What’s so unique about the Institute? This relates to its combination of innovative thinking when setting its curriculum – enabling it to earn the highest motivation and commitment from its participants – and of their self-sustainability, making it an extremely resilient social good organization in Brazil. The Ramacrisna Institute is on track to keep growing, adapting, and innovating. They’re in for the long run.
