Alana seeks to find a transforming pathway for new generations, working toward a more sustainable world and one of excellent human relations. Towards this end, it is structured to act on three fronts, via Alana Institute, AlanaLab and the Alana Foundation.
Alana Institute is a nonprofit civil society organization that brings together the programs that we believe in, in the effort to ensure conditions for children to fully experience their childhoods. Founded in 1994, the organization today has its own programs and with partners – all of which you can find out more about below – and is supported by the income from an endowment fund since 2013. Its mission is to “honor the children”.
AlanaLab is Alana core business, with a focus on impact and innovation. It participates in the management of the group’s businesses, of which it is also a partner. Currently, these businesses are the Maria Farinha Filmes production company, the impact distributor Flow, and the extended reality production company JungleBee. It also acts as an accelerator for projects by the Institute and the Foundation, and is responsible for the Alana group’s Impact investment portfolio. The dividends earned by AlanaLab are allocated in full to the endowment that funds Alana’s projects.
On the other hand, the Alana Foundation, based in the United States and totally philanthropic, was created in order to invest in cutting-edge and innovative research capable of changing the world. Currently supports a study that seeks to increase the chances of developing new therapies for people with Down syndrome.
