What Arca's activities teach us!

The first semester of 2023 has just ended and it is the right time to take a look at some of the activities offered by Arca do Saber and what they bring to our beneficiaries.

Capoeira, taught by Mestre Coquinho, who was born and raised in the Favela of Vila Prudente, is one of the main activities offered weekly to our 130 children and teenagers. According to Wikipedia, Capoiera is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, music and spirituality. Born of the melting pot of enslaved Africans, Indigenous Brazilians and Portuguese influences at the beginning of the 16th century, capoeira is a constantly evolving art form that was granted in 2014, the status of intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO.
The inclusion of Capoeira in Arca do Saber's curiculum is an evidence for many years. At every encounter, the children and teeenagers of Arca have the opportunity to connect with the history, music and traditions of this Brazilian art form, strengthening their identity and appreciation of their cultural heritage. By practicing capoiera, they developed abilities that go beyond the physical, preparing them for the challenges the future holds. These skills include evolving and progressing, honoring traditions and discipline, playing together and respectfully challenging each other.

Our arts workshops are a second pillar of Arca do Saber weekly activities. The magic of colors comes to life every week. Under the specific guidance of French volunteers, these activities have the potential to expand young people's horizons, stimulate concentration, foster teamwork, sharpen motor abilities, awaken creativity. It's a special time when exploring the world of art, letting imagination flow and creating unique works. Weekly, we can see the sparkle in the eyes of the children and teenagers as they discover new ways to express themselves artistically. Together and thanks to your support, we are building a future full of colors and possibilities.

Eventually, we would like to highlight all the efforts made to awaken the taste for reading at Arca do Saber. We're happy to share some good news with you after the unfortunate flooding of the library room in March and all the damage it caused: the library was carefully restaured and organized with new shelves and books specially chosen for each age group. Now, with the new lending system, children and teenagers can take the books home and explore amazing stories! The procedure has already started and the excitement is contagious. The kids can't wait to explore our collection and embark on fresh literary journeys.

By letting you see a little of what goes on at Arca do Saber, we want to thank you for your renewed support for what we do. Your assistance is crucial for the children and teenagers of Arca. Continue to share our actions.

We at Arca's staff want to wish you a lovely summer.
