Catalytic Communities

Since 2000, Catalytic Communities (CatComm) has worked with Rio community leaders bringing visibility to local initiatives through Web-based channels. CatComm’s services have reached 1,200 community leaders from over 200 of Rio’s 1,021 low-income favelas, and is the only Brazilian organization providing social media trainings for community leaders. As of today, 120 leaders have been trained from 50 communities, with plans to train 200 in 2010. These trainings and our community news site,, will be further developed in 2011-12.
