Overview of Capoeira4Refugees
Capoeira4Refugees works with refugee communities and particularly traumatised children
and youth using the Brazilian art/sport of capoeira to bring psychosocial benefits such as
increased self-respect and reduced levels of violence. Capoeira4Refugees was founded in
2007 working with street children in Syria (where it still has projects). C4R has been active in
the West Bank, Palestine, since 2011 and in Jordan since 2014.
