The focus of our project exceeds capoeira as a mere sport practice.

Projeto Cantigas e Brincadeiras de Roda

Project

Capoeira Cameleão

Location

Pato Branco, Parana, Brazil

Target

In 2014, the group Capoeira Cameleão started the project Projeto Cantigas e Brincadeiras de Roda in the Cristo Rei neighborhood of Pato Branco. The project provides free capoeira class to children between the ages of five and eleven. The project is maintained from a partnership between Capoeira Cameleão Group in Pato Branco and Academia ACCC ad Mercado Econômico.
The classes, which have been taking place three times a week for three years, include recreational activities, folk dances, instrument practice and music, as well as the movement of capoeira. However, learning goes far beyond theory and practice of the art. According to Agnaldo Luiz Rampanelli, coordinator of the project, students are also taught important values, such as discipline and the importance of education.

Impact

The project began with eight children and today has approximately 50 regular participants. According to teacher Diego Drudi Sanches, students who have been participating for even one year have significantly improved their motor skills and flexibility.

Projeto Sonho de Ferias

Project

Católica de Santa Catarina

Location

Jaraguá do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil

Target

Every year in March, the Católica de Santa Catarina University in Jaraguá do Sul hosts Projeto Sonho de Ferias, an event promoted by the Jaraguá do Sul Business Association (Acijs).
About 70 students between 8 and 10 years old from the municipal schools Ribeirão Cavalo and Professor Gertrudes Steilein Milbratz, participate in cultural and recreational activities throughout the day. Capoeira workshops, painting with gouache, face painting, collage, games, oral health workshops and storytelling were offered. The programs aim to awaken the vision of patriotism, regional culture, community social development, hygiene, prevention of drug use, and encourage fellowship, solidarity and fraternity. The program is supervised by 27 university students from different courses that participate in the Community Project – a curricular component that provides students with 30 hours of collaboration in social projects.

“In the day-to-day running, we often do not realize the difficulties and needs of people who are out of our conviviality. The project is important to make us look to the next. Besides, spending that time playing with the kids is a lot of fun, “

comments law student Bruna Karina Postai, who participated in Projeto Sonho de Ferias for the second time.
Ana Paula Fliegner dos Santos, the social worker associated with the project, emphasizes that the initiative is an opportunity for learning for both children and students: children get to take advantage of the school holidays in activities that awaken their curiosity of the world, university and community actions; and students who have the opportunity to engage in community action, thus contributing to a better world.

Impact

For participating children, this is a great opportunity to have fun and learn to live in a healthy society, recognize the importance of valuing life and make new friends. Projeto Sonho de Ferias aims to promote integration between children and adults; raise awareness about the importance of preserving the environment and value the importance of schooling through educational and recreational activities. In addition, the program highlights the need and importance of public and private entities to be in tune with the surrounding communities.
