Alexandre Esteves, Edgard Gouveia Jr, Mariana Gauche Motta, Natasha Mendes Gabriel and Rodrigo Rubido Alonso founded Instituto Elos. Only Mariana, Natasha e Rodrigo are still part of the team.
No. Elos is not part of any government assistance program, but has had several of its programs approved in government bidding announcements and has been contracted several times by municipal and federal governments. We have also carried out and implemented different types of projects in partnership with municipal, state and national governments.
We rely on a permanent and paid team of employees and occasionally count on the help of young people in training by means of a service provision contract, an internship or volunteer work. We rely on the support and participation of a great number of people to carry out our actions: young entrepreneurs, community residents, local commerce representatives etc. We consider these people to be process “participants” rather than volunteers.
We work with a sustainability strategy that unites service provision with fundraising.
The experience that led way to Elos began in 1996. Elos was formally founded in 2000.
No. Elos’s headquarters are in Santos, São Paulo, where all team members reside. It is from here that we plan actions in other cities, states and countries, together with a local partner.

Elos has a planned schedule for the year which makes it difficult to fit in unplanned actions. However, we created the OASIS precisely so that more communities could be benefited, even when our team is not available. Our suggestion is that you seek out one of our young partners from the Warrior network to help you out; this might be a good way to begin.
Men, women, children… anyone who has a dream for their community and is willing to make it come true.
We like to say that anyone can hold and OASIS if certain principles are observed. We always recommend the participation of a facilitator with prior OASIS experience and we take two scenarios into account:
It is a community mobilization tool of free use, developed by Instituto Elos and utilized by the Institute itself and by young entrepreneurs in different parts of the world.
