GIFE, a partner of the ELAS Fund, has launched the #SustentaOSC web series, which deals with the importance of donations for civil society organizations and the main challenges for strengthening their economic sustainability.

The first episode of the web series takes a broad look at the subject. Entitled The Importance of Giving, the video proposes an analysis of the current situation in this universe from the point of view of key players from civil society organizations (CSOs), the legal field, academia and Private Social Investment (PSI). The role of organized civil society in the development of a democratic society, the threat to the sector's performance due to a sustainability crisis and the need to foster a culture of giving in the country and the ability of these organizations to mobilize resources for the evolution of Brazilian society are all points covered in the episode.
 
For Thierry Dudermel, Minister Counsellor and Head of Cooperation at the European Union Delegation in Brazil, the work of civil society is under threat in many parts of the world. "The European Union is concerned about the threat to the working space and the increasingly restricted capacity of civil society to act. For us, this is a threat to democracy. "
 
The video includes testimonies from other ELAS Fund partners, such as Mafoane Odara, from the Avon Institute, and Eleutéria Amora, from CAMTRA and Abong.
