A OAS- Organizacao dos Estados Americanos- convidou Celso Athayde, Secretario Geral da CUFA para o lancamento da Rede Inter-americana de Protecao Social (Inter-American Social Protection Network), que aconteceu nesta terca-feira, 22 de setembro na cidade de Nova Iorque. Fabio Azeredo, coordenador da CUFA nos Estados Unidos acompanhou Athayde no evento.

A mesa de abertura contou com o Secretario Geral da OAS, Jose Miguel Insulza; com a Secretaria de Estado dos Estados Unidos, Hillary Clinton; com a presidente do Chile, Michelle Bachelet; com o prefeito de Nova Iorque, Michael Bloomberg; e com o presidente da IDB (Inter-American Development Bank- Banco Inter-Americano de Desenvolvimento), Luis Alberto Moreno.

A rede foi criada para que a troca de experiencias nos diversos paises das Americas possa ser estimulada. Brasil e Mexico foram citados como exemplos de projetos de transferencia de renda que tem sido copiadas com sucesso em paises dee primeiro mundo, como enfatizaram Madam Clinton e o prefeito de Nova Iorque, Mike Bloomfield, que inclusive ja adaptou a experiencia e tem tido exito em sua cidade.

A CUFA foi convidada por representar a capilaridade necessaria que esses projetos precisam ter para que funcionem efetivamente enquanto rede social, sem o que seria mais um projeto de cima para baixo e nao "de baixo para cima e de dentro para fora" como salientou Madam Clinton.

CUFA was Founded in Brazil in 1999, 10 years ago. Celso Athayde is the great mind behind the idea that became a movement of empowerment of the impoverished, in the most intense do-it-for-yourself style, as opposed to simply being assisted by Government and non-profit programs.
CUFA is present in all 27 states of Brazil and develops projects in the areas of Education, Evironment, Culture and Sports.
MV Bill is another Founding member of CUFA, he's a rapper, a docummentarist, a writer, and above all , a social activist, whose presence is required in several meetings by the brazilian government when to redefine social politics.
CUFA - Central Unica das Favelas (United Central of the Favelas) is the strongest grass-root organization in Brazil and it is now setting foot in the US.
