On November 02, 2017, Sebastião, Miratus Association’s founder, went to Washington to participate to the meeting “Construccion de Capital Cívico – Experiências en America Latina
“, meeting organized by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The Bank took the initiative of bringing together in its headquarters, several important agents, scholars, great researchers to discuss the evolution of civil society and invited Sebastião to participate in order to present a concrete example of transforming community throughout sport.
With him, was Kirk Bowman, professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, one of the founders of Rise Up & Care NGO (Riseup.care
) and very good friend of him.
No need to say that it was a great and unforgettable experience to the founder of the NGO Miratus that took fully profit of his stay to discover a little more of this country that he only knew from Puerto Rico where he spent a few days in 2009.
