Nima of the Month

JCI_BrasilJapao (São Paulo, Brazil)

JCI Brasil–Japão is a local São Paulo, Brazil chapter of Junior Chamber International (JCI), a non-profit organization of active citizens from all sectors of society who embrace new ideas, collaboration, and diversity. JCI members are concerned about the future of the world and are committed to making an impact in their communities.
