FOSTERING COMMUNITIES THROUGH YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

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

Theodora Stankova1 Comment

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.

Our founder Niousha Roshani was also there to accompany the youth in this special class.

The boys, Johan "Morcego" and Jhonatan "Tatuagem", would never stay behind with their acrobatic moves.
