Edu Lyra will be honored at the New York Dinner
We are very excited to announce that we are going to honor one of the most active and admired social entrepreneurs in Brazil for his contribution to the social transformation of the country.
Edu Lyra is the founder of Gerando Falcões, an organization that serves thousands of families in favelas all around Brazil through education, culture, professional training and income generation efforts. During the pandemic, Gerando Falcões raised more than R$ 60 million, benefiting around 1 million people with the “Corona no Paredão, Fome Não” campaign.
Edu was selected by the World Economic Forum as one of fifteen young people who can change the world, thus joining the Global Shapers team. In 2020, he received the Valor Econômico award, as the Social Entrepreneur of the Year, due to the huge success of the campaign to fight hunger and the Folha de São Paulo Social Entrepreneurship Award.
