Initiated by Monitor Cabeça, Leetal Besouros is a project by the CDO India aimed at bringing the beautiful art of capoeira to the under privileged children of Mumbai. The project, run in association with Vatsalya, was started in October of 2010. Originally planned as a 3 month project, it’s been over 3 years and Leetal Besouros is still going strong!
There are over 50 students between the ages of 6 and 15.
Leetal Besouros aims to empower street children with the wonderful art of capoeira. Currently the project is being run at a Vatsalya Children’s Center. The ultimate goal of the project is to empower kids to explore their hidden talents, to enhance their physical and mental abilities to take them beyond anything they ever imagined. And of course, one day be inspired to spread what they have learnt to others as well.
