A special Capoeira class - see how great our youth are at acrobatics!

Acrobatics are an integral part of Capoeira, and our youth are really great at it! Every month participants in our Playing for Freedom program get the chance to go to a specialized gym, where they can practice and improve their acrobatics skills. It is also an opportunity for the young people to leave their community of Ciudad Bolívar and get to know new people and places in Bogotá. Last month we were lucky to have a visit from Nukanti's founder and executive director Niousha Roshani, who is also a keen capoeirista.

My experiences in Valencia - a story by Shaziya Tayub

I was one of the 10 participants who volunteered to be part of the Exchange programme in Valencia, Spain. This was a one-week programme, which allowed students from the UK, Spain and Morocco to collaborate with each other in order to work together with regards to human rights. This one week was designed to promote human rights message using photography, music, drama, talking and workshops.
