Capoeira al-Shababi is a Jordanian non-profit organisation working with children and youth in Jordan providing psychosocial support and life-skills to vulnerable communities. Capoeira al-Shababi believes that one of the biggest challenges that vulnerable children and youth face is psychological distress and the impact of trauma, whether from experience of war, conflict, poverty or social pressures. A healthy childhood environment that provides space for learning, self-discovery and the development of life skills are the most effective and essential conditions for a successful future. That is why Capoeira al-Shababi focuses on the following: Movement activities that serve as a therapy for healing from trauma and other psychological difficulties. Play, expression and creativity - the backbone of healthy child development -through exercise and music. TOT capacity-building teaching local trainers to conduct capoeira projects, increasing sustainability. Safe spaces to encourage trust, dialogue, and social bonds, increasing social support network.
