Capoeira Alafia – Co-creating a world in which children can live in peace and harmony.
Capoeira for Peace
Because Afro-Brazilian Martial Art/Dance/Culture has an amazing potential to unite and free human beings
Capoeira + Self-Development
Equipping youths with skills, values and attitudes to overcome difficulties and succeed in life.
Recycling, Natural Building…Design Your Life according to Natural Law and find Harmony with Nature
Mentoring and personal development
More formal PD sessions provide young people with the skills they need to overcome the challenges in their lives and 121 Mentoring gives young people more focused support and ensures they can access a holistic set of services.
We teach young people the issues of permaculture and environmental sustainability, whilst involving them in waste reuse and recycling projects that help young people earn income.
Creation of a safe, inclusive and environmentally sustainable project space at Harmony Hill will provide Alafia with a permanent home, a source of income generation and a place for programming to take place.
