Philanthropic Project, Impact Women NFTs, Launches to Combat Domestic Violence in Brazil



Florianópolis, Brazil, Apr 2, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Impact Women NFT, a philanthropic project displaying exquisite artworks handmade by a talented artist, has announced the launch of its NFT project. Aimed at combating domestic violence in the previously mentioned South American country, these beautifully crafted NFTs were created by renowned, talented, and award-winning illustrator Manu Cunhas.

Designed by Brazilian fintech to fight the scourge of domestic violence and abuse of women, Impact Women NFT will raise funds for non-profit organizations to take a stand against women’s abuse on all levels.

Current statistics show that domestic violence is at an all-time high. Brazil sits fifth in the ranking of homicides globally; one woman gets raped every eleven minutes. Five hundred and three women suffer aggression every hour, one woman gets killed every two hours, and five beatings occur every two minutes.

Impact Women NFT is fighting to put an end to these crimes.

Profit Shared to Non-profit Organization, Artist, and Project Producer

Split into phases, the first one comprising 20 excellent, awe-inspiring, and elegantly designed artworks of remarkable and high-impact women in history, each of these NFT auctions will greatly benefit non-profit organizations. The goal of the first phase is to raise 30 ETH, ten in auction mode starting at the price of 0.15 ETH and ten in 50 units for a fixed fee of 0.05 ETH.

Impact Women NFT has hand-picked eight exciting and industrious non-profits aggressively fighting violence against women in Brazil. 70% of profits garnered from these NFTs sales will be set aside for organizations, 12% to support Manu Cunhas, another 12% for Doare—the project producer and social enterprise company—and 6% for carbon credits through MOSS.

The campaign will end on May 31st, 2022, and Impact Women NFT will offer rewards and surprises like special parties and airdrops in the metaverse.

A project where art meets philanthropy, Impact Women NFT, will share stories of amazing women that have changed society. The founding team selects ten Brazilian and international women to show respect and admiration for the work they have put in.

An Ambitious Roadmap

Built on sustainability and longevity, Impact Women NFT has introduced a viable and strategic roadmap comprising detailed future events. Divided into separate phases, Impact Women NFT plans to run a decentralized autonomous organization [DAO], create and launch a native token, and a non-profit crypto fund to support organizations combating domestic violence and other forms of abuse against women.

Additionally, Impact Women NFT will continue to create and release amazing, unique, well-designed, and aesthetically pleasing artworks to support life-changing non-profits.

Government of India has prioritized the timely completion of large-scale Infrastructure projects keeping infrastructure development as the central pillar of growth and socio-economic advancement of the country.

Additionally, with the deployment of milestone-based monitoring of projects on the PMG portal in November 2021, project reviews have become more holistic, combining both issue resolution and milestone-based monitoring to anticipate delays in projects, mitigating time and cost overruns and identifying agencies/authorities responsible for delays.




At present, PMG is monitoring 1,362 under implementation projects with total anticipated investment of approximately INR 47.55 lakh crore spanning across key sectors like Road, Transport and Highways, Railways, Petroleum and Natural Gas, New and Renewable Energy,  etc. Under the guidance of senior officers from DPIIT, in FY 2021-22, 787 new projects with an investment value of INR 19.6 lakh crore have been brought on PMG for monitoring. And 44 projects with an investment value of INR 1.25 lakh crore have been commissioned.




PMG has been convening regular review meetings between project proponents, State Governments and Union Ministries to accelerate project implementation through expeditious resolution of issues. Since April 2021, PMG has organized 30 review meetings with nearly all State Governments and Central Ministries. With the co-operation and active participation of the State Governments and Ministry Officials, 374 projects with a value of approximately INR 17 lakh crore have been reviewed during these meetings. As a result of regular reviews, 568 issues in 248 projects worth INR 12.20 lakh crores have been resolved.

Canada – Faro Mine Remediation Project

Faro Mine was once the largest open-pit lead-zinc mine in the world. Spanning over 25 square kilometres, it is now the site of one of the most complex abandoned mine remediation projects in Canada. It is located in south-central Yukon, near the town of Faro, in the traditional territory of the Kaska First Nations, and upstream from Selkirk First Nation. The Ross River Dena Council is the closest First Nation community to the site.

Faro Mine was once the largest open-pit lead-zinc mine in the world. Spanning over 25 square kilometres, it is now the site of one of the most complex abandoned mine remediation projects in Canada. It is located in south-central Yukon, near the town of Faro, in the traditional territory of the Kaska First Nations, and upstream from Selkirk First Nation. The Ross River Dena Council is the closest First Nation community to the site.

During its 29 years of operation (1969 to 1998), Faro Mine processed between 5,000 and 9,300 tonnes of ore per day. Today, the Faro Mine Complex includes 70 million tonnes of tailings, 320 million tonnes of waste rock and three open pits filled with contaminated water. Both the tailings and the waste rock contain high levels of heavy metals that could leach into the surrounding environment. The Faro Mine is one of the highest priority contaminated sites within the federal property inventory and requires ongoing management to protect human health and safety and the environment.

Parsons Inc. is the current care and maintenance contractor, as well as the interim construction manager for the site. They have been responsible for both the care and maintenance and the urgent works construction management at the site over the past several years. Their current contracts expire on March 31, 2022. Following a two-stage competitive process, administered by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), the new main construction manager contract was awarded to Parsons Inc. for an initial amount of $108.2 million, covering Term 1 services, starting in April 2022 and going until March 31, 2024.

The contract is structured to accommodate the phased approach of the remediation plan, and includes options to extend through the duration of active remediation, which is expected to be completed by 2038. The main construction manager and care and maintenance services contractor will work alongside a number of other contractors engaged by the Government of Canada. These contracts include: remediation plan design and support services; environmental monitoring services; geotechnical services; and regulatory services. An additional contract is currently underway to complete the design of the Faro Mine Permanent Water Treatment Plant.

The main construction management and care and maintenance services contract includes Indigenous opportunities for employment, training and subcontracting (including goods and services) for the Kaska First Nations and their businesses. This will mean full-time employment for Kaska Dena First Nations workers and purchases from Kaska Dena-owned businesses. Subcontracts issued by the construction manager will include additional socio-economic benefits.

The remediation is being conducted with the participation of the Kaska First Nations. This includes their active involvement with Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada and PSPC in various management committees. In addition to the Indigenous opportunities in the main construction manager and care and maintenance contract, there are similar requirements incorporated into the remediation plan design, support services and environmental monitoring services contracts to provide further opportunities.
