Most Meaningful Change

ICom’s leadership brought to the local agenda the case for transparency among nonprofits, creating collaboratively an online platform (www.portaltransparencia.org.br) to help strenghten nonprofits and their relationship with the community as a whole. We are coordinating a group of almost 80 organizations in a movement to work with and evaluate local government in order to improve public policies. The movement passed a law to make it mandatory for the local government to establish a plan of goals and to be accountable for those goals to the entire population annually. ICom has opened a Center for Social Innovation, offering services to nonprofits and individuals to test, prototype and implement initiatives aiming to improve quality of life.
