Cultivando Agua Boa is not a project from Itaipu. Itaipu is one of the key actors in this project. It helps to lead, to wear, to facilitate, to find other actors and also to finance in part. But the CAB has over 3000 partner organizations. Itaipu gives money, but this expense has always existed. It is only now that the money is in addition to the money from the municipality, the state (Parana), universities, NGOs, plus also other resources (including human resources and heritage). All the money raised in a single project can go further.
All these organizations have their own budgets, when they are used in a dispersed manner, causes a waste of money and shares superimposed. Money is not missing, the problem is that it is misspent. Even with little money, but with a good idea, well managed, with clear objectives, modern techniques of administration, planning, coaching, monitoring control, the result is extraordinary. And when the population is actively involved, it is even better. We have examples where participatory methodology has reached such a level that spending 10% of the usual cost, the result was much better. People are very good when they get involved in a good idea and they see the seriousness of the proposal.
