The campaign of the Guardiões de transformação was launched in august 2015. After a year 35 donators joined the community and collectively gathered 71.214 R$. Here we'd like to present where these contributions have been invested and what has been its' impact. We have invested in three projects:
The expansion path
After the GSA2015 program 30 warriors actively participated in the expansion path, a one year support program and online guiding process to support over distance warriors in 22 countries to realize the dreamprojects that they have been setting up after the inspiration and deep transformation process of the GSA program.
The Expansion Path included 12 online groupcalls, 150 hours of direct coaching of participants and an online platform with supporting assigments, tools and materials for the social entrepreneurs to excell in the realization of their dreams. Guardiões contributed to the increasing of the online infrastructure. Some of the projects that were supported by Elos through the expansion path include (a.o.) Oasis Game and Oasis Training Zimbabwe, the set up of a project of 4 warriors who started 'geração mais amor' hosting projects and conversations in schools and companies and various Oasis Games hosted including Recife and various in the state of Sao Paulo.
Elos has been supporting various communities in connecting to and preparing for sessions at the 'promotorio communitario'.
"The Community Prosecutor is the space of articulation between the prosecution and the actors of society (citizens, governments, businesses and institutions) to provoke discussion and referrals solutions to problems highlighted by society, speeding results and avoiding the demand for surveys and processes court."
Elos participated in 12 gatherings, supporting community members of Santos in articulating legal questions and disputes. Find out more about stories of the community and (social) justice in the blog here (Portuguese only)
Accompanying GSA-communities in Santos and São Vicente
In late 2015 and 2016 Elos continued supporting some of the communities who were part of the GSA2015 program, especially José Menino. The support to communities was especially given shape in supporting in organizing themselves as a community, additional hands-on moments to keep the results in shape and building partnerships and relationships that offer opportunities to the communities to continue doing their impacting work.
For instance in José Menino the community build a partnership with the Santos rotary club (Portuguese only)
Guardiões de transformação focus for 2017 and 2018
For the coming two years we aim for the amount of Guardiões to go over 200 . All the contributions of the guardiões community will be mostly invested in a fund that will guarantee the realization of GSA-programs and the impact on an increasing amount of communities in the Baixada Santista for the next 10 years to come.
