Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro has offered his support to Neymar as the Paris Saint-Germain forward faces allegations of sexual assault – allegations that the player strenuously denies.Sao Paulo police recently confirmed to Goal that there has been a complaint made against the player from a Brazilian woman he met in Paris.The police would not discuss details of the ongoing case, which was filed by a woman on May 31.

Brazilian outlet UOL was the first to report the accusations and claim statements made to authorities are being kept confidential.Neymar’s camp maintains the 27-year-old’s innocence, stating that he was the target of a blackmail attempt.In addition, the player’s father believes WhatsApp messages sent to his son’s phone from the alleged victim will be used to help clear his name.Bolsonaro, a controversial figure, has also positioned himself on the side of Neymar, stating that he hopes to embrace the Selecao striker on Wednesday evening and offer his support.“I hope to give Neymar a hug before the match,” Bolsonaro said at a farmers’ event in Goais state, not far from where Brazil will face Qatar in a pre-Copa America friendly on Wednesday. “He’s a boy. He’s in a difficult moment but I believe him.”The president also singled out one of Brazil’s most popular news outlets, Folha de S.Paulo, for their coverage of the allegations levelled at Neymar, accusing the publication of reaching conclusions before knowing all of the facts involved.“You [Folha de S.Paulo reporter] are judging Neymar, Folha de S.Paulo is already judging Neymar as it has always judged me all this time. The woman crosses the continent, many things happen and then she came back to Brazil.“Tonight we are all together to score two goals at the Mane Garrincha [Stadium].”Neymar himself spoke ahead of the match, thanking fans for their support ahead of what he described as potentially the most difficult match of his life.“I just want to thank God, my family, my friends and all those who sent positive messages so that I could stay balanced and focused,” he wrote on Instagram. “I never felt so loved by you all, thank you. “Today I have one of the most difficult matches of my career, if not the most (given the circumstances). ‘The joy of the lord is our strength’.”Brazil’s national team set-up will be keen to move on from the allegations quickly with the Copa America starting next week.The former Barcelona star is part of a Brazil team that will be hoping to triumph in a tournament they have failed to even reach the semi-finals for since 2007, which they won under Dunga.

ConnectW March 15 Program Focuses on Changing the World as a Social Entrepreneur Facebook By CBN E-Headlines Tumblr Pinterest Google+ Twitter Share. LinkedIn on March 9, 2017 Email 0 (Photos courtesy of Shannon Keith & Sudara)How much can we really change what we don’t like in the world? How much influence can one person have? If Shannon Keith, Founder and CEO of Sudara, is an example, the answer is a lot more than we ever realized. In its March 15 meeting from 5-8pm, ConnectW’s program—From Making Kids’ Lunches to Changing the World: Finding Balance as a Social Entrepreneur—will feature Shannon and her social enterprise, Sudara, a thriving benefit corporation with a mission rooted in job creation for women in India who are at the highest risk of or survivors of sex trafficking, while empowering them to create a lasting, generational impact for their families.It all started in 2005 when Shannon, a Bend local, traveled to India where she witnessed modern-day slavery for the first time. After visiting the red-light district, she heard stories about how young women were sold as sex slaves to help their families and then often held against their will. Even those who managed to escape the brothels usually returned due to social stigma and having no other means to survive.Shannon wanted to stop the vicious cycle by creating a solution. On her tour of India, she noticed the beautiful fabrics used to make saris and realized she could use this fabric to create her own product to be sold in the U.S. She returned home and soon founded Sudara (formally known as the International Princess Project). Sudara hired the first six women who had been trapped by the sex trafficking cycle in 2006, and trained them in a newfound trade. Together these women gained confidence, dignity, and learned how to sew a pattern for loungewear pants called PUNJAMMIES®.Sudara now employs more than 150 women in multiple NGO partner sewing centers in India, where they receive steady, living wages, allowing them to pull themselves out of the sex trafficking cycle for good. “Charities alone just don’t have the resources to tackle all the injustices in the world alone. It’s imperative that businesses come along and provide a platform for social change in terms of job creation, economic sustainability and a path forward,” says Shannon, a wife and mother of three. “I am completely convinced that the power of social business can and IS changing the world.”Yes, people like us can change what we don’t like in the world, and women can be a catalyst for innovative, social impact. Find out how one woman, Shannon Keith, does just that at ConnectW’s March program.For more information about ConnectW, please contact ConnectW Programs Chair Chelsea Callicott at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-410-4162, check out www.connectw.org or come visit in person.ConnectW meets at 5 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month at the Bend Golf & Country Club. Tickets are available on the website until noon the Friday before the event, which is March 10 for this program. You can attend twice without being a member, but ConnectW is pretty sure you’ll want to join. After all, where else are you going to find such a mix of business opportunities, networking, friendship and fun?
