Testimonials from Volunteers
“I spent two weeks in January 2018 observing the work of Capoeira al-Shababi at Za’atari refugee camp, studying the relationship between movement technique, emotions and militarisation as part of a research project funded by the Academy of Finland. The capoeira classes provide a safe space to practice social skills and body awareness through such methods as mirroring, synchrony, peer support, touch and exploring the body’s capacities. I was impressed by the constant effort to develop the program as a community, comprised of trainers, facilitators, children, their teachers and parents. This means asking feedback and making decisions together, with everyone offered a voice to express their concerns and insights alike.”
Dr. Susanna Hast, University of the Arts, Theatre Academy Helsinki.
Advocate & Fundraise
Here are some ideas for how you can help us:
Fundraising Roda - host a roda in the name of Capoeira al-Shababi, and keep a donation box by the side. Contact us for materials you can spread around to raise awareness of our work.
If you're a capoeira player or school looking to support and spread the love of capoeira, host a Bateria Raffle fundraiser!
Donate a capoeira instrument or two for children and youth and we’ll send you lots of photos of it being used in our projects!
Spread the word - contact us for resources and information about our projects, and help us spread the word among your community!
