Who We Are
Capoeira Alafia is a charitable organization with branches in Jamaica and Germany. We are dedicated to uplift children and young adults who are affected by crime, violence and poverty.
Capoeira Alafia (CA) offers the multi-facetted martial art/dance/culture of capoeira in combination with a diverse self-development component, designed to foster the holistic development of children and young adults. While our Capoeira for Peace program intentionally promotes cooperation and non-aggression, CA’s second focal point on the environment is based on permaculture principles and living in harmony with nature.
