Social Engagement

Pequeno Príncipe’s history is marked by social mobilization. For 100 years, the support of individuals and companies has been essential to the much-needed advances in the prevention and health promotion of boys and girls. Individuals and corporations contribute to the allocation of time, talent and allocation of resources, either through direct donation or via tax benefits.

In this long journey of the institution, many people have made a difference. Doctors and other health professionals, volunteers, children and their families with wonderful stories of overcoming, which daily teach and inspire us.

And there are also social investors, who have joined the entire technical team of the Hospital, to mobilize society around the cause of child and youth health. The Pequeno Príncipe Gala is an example of how philanthropic investors engage and support the institution. In this context, the participation of Daniele Giacomazzi Behring and Amalia Spinardi Thompson Motta stand out. The involvement with Pequeno Príncipe, which started with support for the Gala, today goes much further.

Ambassador of the Pequeno Príncipe, Daniele has been working hard to mobilize people, companies and resources for the cause of child and youth health and also in the discussion and development of strategies to create engagement. The Curitiba native articulates her network of contacts in Brazil and abroad in favor of the children and adolescents served by Pequeno Príncipe. With their dedication and collaboration, hundreds of people started to support the institution.

Through her friend Daniele, businesswoman Amalia learned about the activities carried out by Pequeno Príncipe in the health field. With the view that it is possible to reconcile a personal and professional agenda with actions that benefit society, Amalia joined the institution’s support group. The initial involvement in the Pequeno Príncipe Gala soon expanded and the institution started to count the energy, creativity, strategic look and disposition of the businesswoman.

Along this path, it is also important to highlight the participation of Belinda Badcock Brito and Monique Nosé.

Another important contribution is from renowned French chef Claude Troisgros. He has embraced the gastronomic events of Pequeno Príncipe since its creation, in 2011, and is now the patron of the Pequeno Príncipe Gala. In 2020, Troisgros completes nine years of partnership with Pequeno Príncipe, donating his time and talent for the lives of thousands of boys and girls from all over Brazil.
