Nico Gormsen, a member of the foundation’s Board of Trustees, has recently visited the Foundation’s Capodanca project in northern Brasil. There he toured the premises and viewed a capoeira lesson.
Since the project’s start in 2005, many underprivileged children and young people had the opportunity to access better healthcare and education thanks to dedicated care givers and sponsors who help promoting physical, mental and social skills through the project’s central focus – capoeira dance.
Currently using two buildings, the Capodanca project houses around 120 students under 18 years of age. There they not only socialize, dance, make music but also improve social mobility in the digital-technology sector by taking computer classes.
