Our First Year Anniversary

It’s already been a year!

In the past 12 months, we haven’t spared our efforts to build NGC.

We assembled a network  of first-class consultants. We are very proud to have them on board and are confident we will achieve great projects together.

We built alliances with key partners in the Middle East and South America, including the Arab Network for the Study of Democracy (ANSD) and Emprendia.

We have designed and are now managing the New Cities Foundation  pilot project on e-health in the favela of Santa Marta, Rio de Janeiro. Rosalie Marin, a postgraduate expert of the “pacification” process in the favelas of Rio, is currently coordinating the local Task Fore in close collaboration with the following actors:

–              The Municipality of Rio

–              General Electric

–               Cisco

–               Orange

–               The Family Clinic of Santa Marta

–               The University of State of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ)

NGC’s first year was a success and we intend to do more and better in 2012.

We are currently working hard on an unprecedented  initiative on democratization processes in the Middle East and South America in partnership with the ANSD.

We’ll keep you posted!
