WE BRING FUN, RESILIENCE AND HAPPINESS TO THE LIVES OF CHILDREN IN CONFLICT ZONES
Across the globe, there are over 30 million child refugees. Many live in refugee camps, homeless, or have no access to school. We daily see tragic examples of what the stresses of instability, isola- tion, and not having a known future can do to youth. Aggression, violence, hyperactivity, depression, drugs, bedwetting; they are amongst some of the impacts of war on children.
Capoeira has proven to be e ective in creating a safe space for these children to play, learn life skills, and in promoting health and psychosocial wellbeing. Capoeira is a Brazilian artform, born out of slavery, and consisting of live music, sport and play with no winner and no loser.
