Hi folks!

We are proud to announce we are finalists at the Google Global Impact
Challenge | Brazil!

Our project deals with something that affects everybody: your pocket (in
our case, the Brazilian pocket :). Open Spending (Gastos Abertos in
Portuguese) will show you how the federal government of Brazil and the
state government of São Paulo are spending OUR money. We’ll do everything
through easy and interactive data visualizations.

But we will not stop right there! We know that such a change in attitude
doesn’t come overnight. It requires a lot of effort and dedication. It
requires awareness.

That’s why we’ll offer courses and tools so anyone will be able to use Open
Spending in efficient and striking ways, anywhere. We’ll create the
conditions for anyone to bring Open Spending to any city in the country, *a
la* School of Data (Escola de Dados here). When everyone changes their
realities, we change our country.

*Please, vote in our project to help us transform


Thank you!
