Casa da Capoeira

Project

Casa da Capoeira

Location

Johannesburg, South Africa

Target

Casa Da Capoeira is continually looking to form lasting and effective partnerships with non-profit organizations and local communities. Contributing to the social wellbeing and uplifting of a community is a core component of Casa da Capoeira’s values.

They currently hold monthly rodas, open to all students from around Johannesburg, and carry an ‘entry fee’ of a minimum of 1kg of non-perishable food. Recently, CDC has formed a working relationship with MaAfrika Tikkun which will ensure that the food collected on a monthly basis will go to those who need it most.

Impact

The non-perishable food that is donated by Casa Da Capoeira has been gratefully received by orphaned and vulnerable children at the MaAfrika Tikkun Diepsloot ‘Wings of Life’, Orange Farm ‘Arekopaneng’ and Alexandra ‘Phuthaditjaba’ Community Centres. The cooks that prepare fresh, healthy food at these Community Centres on a daily basis are grateful for the donations.
