The session concluded with an inspirational presentation by Tia Selminha, the founder of Kreston’s nominated charity for this year, Semente do Amanha (Seed of Tomorrow). The charity seeks to assist vulnerable children and young adults in Rio de Janeiro to recognise their aspirations and reach their potential by providing access to sports, music, drama and cultural and self-awareness and motivational projects.
The delegation was then given a spectacular performance by a marching musical band of 30 children after which Bent presented Tia with Kreston’s donation.
