Fundraising ideas

Your fundraising will give the chance to kids to play and learn capoeira. For these kids trapped in conflict zones, that chance to escape, just for a while, is like heaven on earth.

Support us with a coffee and a cookie a week!

£10 a month gives access to musical instruments for over 100 children

Organise a fundraiser, or donate your birthday!

Here are some very powerful things you can do!

Set up your own page on JustGiving page to fundraise for us

Donate a roda!

And adopt a camp!

Set up an event on Facebook and invite all the capoeiristas you know. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to invite friends as well and give an open class for beginners. You can create a carnival atmosphere with a big happy roda for everyone. Lots of people have done this and made the idea their own. If you want any advice on making this happen, get in touch.

Do good and good friends will follow!

Organise a Fundraiser

Join an existing event and raise funds for our cause or perhaps even arrange your own. It is easier than you might imagine to arrange a small event. 5k, 10k or even a marathon running is a great way to push yourself and raise some cash. Here’s some great advice on raising funds for a sponsored event.

Donate your Birthday!

The simile of the Kids will be your biggest present!

In Brazil they say that anything can be an excuse for a party. Turn up the samba, pour a few caipirinhas and bring some of the spirit of Brazil to your neighbourhood. Parties can be a great way of fundraising.

Cake sales

Everybody loves cake – right?

So you’ve decided you want to raise some money and perhaps the easiest way to raise lots of cash, is the good old-fashioned cake sale. Of course it helps if you can bake, but if you’re not already at some level of proficiency with baking then perhaps ask your mamas or papas to help?

Cupcakes go down well very well. Quick and so easy to make!

Corporate partnerships

Can your company help? As a corporate partner, we can offer the opportunity to make a real impact on the lives of desperately disadvantaged children in a positive, joyful way. 

For your employees, customers and stakeholders we can provide powerful images and case studies. 

As well as corporate grants, many companies offer matched giving programmes, payroll giving or volunteer time off.
