From
a
5
man
initiative
to
a
20
man
NGO
that
enables
the
 inhabitants 
 of 
 public 
 shelters 
 to 
 leave 
 the 
 shelter 
 and
 reenter
society
with
pride.



Environmentally sustainable. All
communities
make
use
of
locally
sourced
 material;
bio‐degradable,
recycled,
or
both.
 They 
 thereby 
 not 
 just 
 alleviate 
 their
 surroundings
from
pollution,
they
turn
it
into
 a
profit
opportunity!



Mumbuca.

Nature 
 provides 
 this 
 community 
 with 
 all 
 they 
 need.
 Including
the
golden
grass
that
now
provides
the
women
 of
this
community
with
a
healthy
revenue
stream.


The
golden
grass,
or
Capim
Dourado,
is
only
harvested
 during
the
months
September
–
November,
allowing
the
 golden
grass
to
regain
its
natural
golden
shine
during
the
 rest
of
the
year.



Financially Viable The
producers
set
the
prices
that
they
find
fair.
The
generated
 income
allows
people
to
become
self
sustaining
again
or
even
 build
a
succesfull
business
and
hire
others!
