About this project

Welcome to Capoeira Alafia!

Capoeira Alafia is a Jamaican based non-profit, non-governmental-organization promoting peace and non-violence through the afro-brazilian culture and martial art of Capoeira. Through our main implementer Grupo Cativeiro Capoeira – Jamaica and other independent contractors we realize community interventions, workshops, displays and regular training for disadvantaged children and adults all over Jamaica. Our projects motivate, educate and encourage individuals, groups and communities, creating a positive impact in their lives by empowering them physically, psychologically as well as culturally.

Offering an attractive, effective and new approach of promoting peace in Jamaica we see our goals in socializing and uniting persons, regardless of their social, cultural or religious backgrounds, in order to help create an educated and peaceful society.

We understand that the prominence of violence in society today – be it among individuals, families or interest groups – has complex and various causes and often comes along with conditions such as poverty, lack of education, degrading family structures, an unhealthy and unnatural lifestyle etc.
Through our work we seek to inspire and empower individuals to gain freedom, strength, respect, balance and peace in their personal lives. Once achieved by individuals these values will create an impact in the social environment of the person (family, friends, workplace and community) and as a final result is reflected within the society.
