BASIC INCOME PROJECT NETWORK

For all groups, NGO  and people who want to be part of this network,

The ReCivitas Institute is an OSCIP  founded in 2006 that works with factual guarantees to human rights applied in independent public policies.

Since 2008, we have developed and supported the Unconditional Basic Income Pilot project in Quatinga Velho, Brazil, an internationally recognized project in Basic Income studies and research.

Through partnerships with local organizations, the Quatinga Velho model can be replicated in any community in the world, even with the same difficulties: with small amounts of equity capital, no government support or support from private corporations and some international solidarity and support.

We decided to propose this partnership with everyone, especially after the World Social Forum , for two reasons. First, because we finally realized how much we have accumulated in shareable knowledge in these ten years; Knowledge that must be shared with those who really want to get things done. Second, because we want to help build these new projects, especially those that are more open to those who really need them. Furthermore, so that we can change the rather elitist and closed direction that Basic Income seems to be taking, unfortunately – in fact, a direction that the world as a whole seems to be taking.

Our idea of basic income is universal. Really universal. No discrimination of any kind, such as nationality, citizenship or territorial. We work with an open partnership model that is not designed to expand, but constrained by geopolitical boundaries, but multiplied without regard to borders, in an international network of communities maintained by the people themselves, person to person, through mutual support between organizations non-governmental organizations.

It is, therefore, within these ideals that we present our initial proposal. On terms of partnership and cooperation, so that we can contribute to the realization of your basic income.

Under the terms of this partnership, we would be responsible​​ for providing the following features:

1. All material available about our project. This includes unpublished items that, for the most part, were unpublished because they are internal and administrative documents that are only interesting for learning field operating methods and procedures, project management and fundraising.

2. A certain amount of free hours (to be determined) for teaching, training and consulting via the Internet for project coordinators, where we will answer any questions about the project in Brazil, as well as help in the development of solutions that are specific to the new project.

3. Contribute financially to the extent of our current financial possibilities. And what is most important: carry out the direct and full transfer (100%) of the resources donated through the international network for the project.

3.a. The fundraising model we intend to share is the one used to financially support and emancipate our project.

3.b. The knowledge and social technology to be transferred is exactly the same as that presented in the course "Social Entrepreneurship and Basic Income" at UNISA in 2013 - University of Santo Amaro, Brazil.

From your partners, the  ReCivitas will require an annual accounting and social report for the project. Based on this, we would renew our contribution each subsequent year.
