The work of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) is specially valuable in order to keep the social sustainability. These organizations are actors effectively able to transform the local environment, from the moment they have access to the necessary tools for developing the social work - knowledge about strategic planning, social projects formulation and the importance of network.
In this way, the purpose of Alligare Project – which name derives from a Latin word that means “mutual commitment” – is to foment the knowledge sharing (in the themes above mentioned of the Third Sector field) between young students with learning experience in the area and needy NGOs in the city of Franca, located in the countryside of São Paulo’s state in Brazil, by training workshops promoted by these students. The promotion of inter-sectoral alliances brings the originality, such that the investment that finances the training workshops comes from the private social investment of the local business sector.
The Alligare Project presents as differential the promotion of strategic alliances between the business sector and the non-profit sector through private social investment in order to provide local development through the assistance to barely structured NGO’s, so they become able to improve themselves and their local – and possibly global – work.
In return is provided to the partner companies the Aureus Seal of Social Action Certification – name derived from a Latin word which means “golden” – that certificates that the company has been involved in a social action. This seal shows the relevance of corporate social responsibility through investment in the Third Sector, demonstrating to the society (through local means of communication) the companies that invest in it.
The Alligare Project was idealized by college students that work in the Junior Company of International Relations – called Orbe - Relações Internacionais -, that operates, among other areas, in the Third Sector. The work of the students is volunteer, so all the financing of the project is used to improve its activities and the training of its members.
