R$1 million to strengthen networks: meet the selected CSOs

The TIM Institute, in partnership with Gerando Falcões, has revealed the ten civil society organizations (CSOs) chosen to receive 100,000 reais each from the ‘Strengthening Networks’ call for proposals. The initiative aims to boost social projects working in communities and slums across Brazil, focusing on activities related to culture, sport, leisure and education for children, young people and adult residents of each territory. More than 200 organizations belonging to the Gerando Falcões network underwent a careful selection process, which assessed technical capacity, impact potential, community mobilization, digital integration, innovation and use of technology.

In 10 years of operation, the TIM Institute has already reached more than 700,000 people in around 500 municipalities throughout Brazil. By supporting these organizations, the Institute further expands its network of beneficiaries, valuing the importance of strengthening alliances to drive effective change and promote human development in Brazil.

Here are the ten CSOs chosen:

Partnership with Gerando Falcões

The partnership between TIM and Gerando Falcões began more than a year ago, with the initiative to transform Favela Marte in São José do Rio Preto into the first favela in Brazil connected to 5G. TIM also announced that part of the revenue from TIM Black plans will go to the institution’s projects, benefiting more than 5,000 communities in 25 states. In addition, it has also implemented an employability program, training and hiring 32 professionals for its stores, with new classes coming soon.
