Learn more about the organization that combines gastronomy with social justice.
I strongly believe in helping others and have always enjoyed working with new social organisations.
Today, I want to introduce Gastromotiva, the first organization in Brazil to promote social transformation through gastronomy. How? By creating and offering training courses for young people on low incomes, support programs for microentrepreneurs and training for beginners. It enables talented youngsters with a passion for food and cooking to learn about gastronomy and use it for self-development.
I love the Gastromotiva initiative because it uses food to bring people together and reduce social inequality. In addition, the organisation has helped create the Movement of Social Gastronomy in Brazil, which has the support of the gourmet market and social investors: companies, foundations, and individuals like you!
Which brings me to my next point... If you are inspired by the cause or simply want to help, make your donation to Gastromotiva!
The charity's famous gala is coming up in less than a month.
Even though it's only about a month away, I can’t wait for the Brazil Foundation Gala, the charity event held annually in September in NYC and in May of this year in São Paulo.
For those who have never heard of it, the Brazil Foundation aims to promote social justice and offer opportunities for all Brazilians. Since 2000, it has raised over 30 million dollars for 350 social projects in the 26 Brazilian states. As one of the founding members, I am very proud of all the foundation has done for the education, health, human rights, and culture of our country!
This year, the event - which includes a dinner, many awards, and an auction - will feature performances from the capoeira group Nagô and Bebel Gilberto, who will be granted the Global Brazilian Award.
Tickets are now on sale. Take the opportunity to participate in this amazing gala - and to help Brazil!
