Viva Rio is a
social enterprise

This means that we adopt innovative

and sustainable management practices and that

our work always aims at achieving social impact.

We are moved by
joy, faith and optimism

in the services we provide, in our voluntary work
and in the projects and technologies we
develop.

VALUES THAT GUIDE US

INNOVATION
to tackle complex
and persistent problems.

Great strides are only possible through innovative actions.

Viva Rio believes in social technology and strategic partnerships to create opportunities where they don't exist, and to conquer important achievements for human development and freedom.

To provide essential services with passion and efficiency is a unique way of improving quality of life in poor areas.

By combining responsible management and social sensibility, Viva Rio is an ally of both the population and the government.

RESPONSIBILITY
with the resources and
the people we serve.

JOY

as a pledge and an attitude towards life.

Lightness and optimism are powerful features for those living in difficult conditions.
We guide our actions by these values, celebrating small victories and promoting
gatherings that celebrate the culture of the places where we are.

GOALS THAT MOVES US

PEACE

Viva Rio came to life as an answer to a wave of violence in 1993. Over these 24 years we have changed significantly, diversified our activities and developed from a movement to a social enterprise, always with the construction of peace as one of our pillars.

INCLUSION

We work to ensure dignity and create opportunities in areas affected by poverty and violence. Inclusion has to do with diversity, social change and human rights.

JUSTICE

In a fair world, everyone’s rights are respected and everyone has equal opportunities for development. We seek to promote justice through innovative projects in several fields and responsible and humanist management of public spaces and facilities.

VOICE

The favelas and peripheries have a lot to say, but they are not always heard. Viva Rio works to amplify the voices of different territories and minorities, while being itself a conscious voice of the civil society on challenging issues.
