SITAWI helps USAID manage philanthropic portfolio of the +Unidos program in Brazil

This year, SITAWI launched a new FINANCEforGOOD solution: donor advised funds. The objective is to help businesses and families direct their resources strategically while lowering the transaction costs involved in sourcing quality projects and organizations

The first client is USAID Brazil, US Agency for International Development, which coordinates the +Unidos initiative, a program that channels philanthropic dollars from 18 multinationals toward projects to protect biodiversity on the Amazon’s fringe by training farmers with socio-environmental best practices, and to provide English language training to disadvantaged young people in Rio de Janeiro


Adaptsurf won free consulting services from SITAWI as part of the Folha de São Paulo Future Social Entrepreneur Award.

Adaptsurf was founded by surfers, Henrique Saraiva, Luana Nobre and Phelipe Nobre, to use surfing to promote social inclusion and integration for those with various disabilities.

“In the coming years Brazil and Rio de Janeiro will host major global sporting events and now more than ever, it is time for us to expand the impact of Adaptsurf. I was very pleased with the strategic consulting provided by SITAWI.” – Henrique Saraiva – Adaptsurf founder.
