Capoeira as a Tool for Social Projects
World Capoeira Maculele Arts Foundation projects touch the lives of many children, offering an opportunity for a healthier, better life through personal growth. They aim to create safe learning environments, art and culture workshops, health education, reliable role models, and nutritious snacks.
Through capoeira, they open a dialogue with the children to discover who they are, why are they special, where they come from, and how to find positive solutions to seemingly impossible problems. As they learn capoeira, its music, history and philosophy, they develop physical and emotional strength to solve problems, make friends, and develop their self-esteem.
