This good practice handbook will help you to promote sports and especially capoeira as a tool of social inclusion. It can be used by sports associations and NGOs to involve socially disadvantaged people in sports activities.

Aims of the tool

The aims of the good practice handbook are twofold. Firstly, we would like to promote sports and
especially capoeira as a tool of social inclusion. Many great organisations work in the social field with
the aim to empower disadvantaged social groups and foster their social inclusion, however, very few
of them use recreational sports as a tool to bring people together and improve their psycho-social
skills while providing a chance for participants to build a diverse and supporting network. Sports can
be a unique mediator, participants of a recreational activity not only have the chance to increase
their physical, psychological, and social skills, but they also have a chance to connect and to build
new relationships regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, abilities or even spoken
languages. Capoeira is as complex and diverse as our societies: by using music, dance, and martial
arts and bringing a cultural aspect as well with its Brazilian origin, a very wide range of people can
find the way to express themselves through capoeira.
Secondly, we would like to motivate sports associations, especially organisations who already work
with capoeira to use the tool they have in their hands, to involve socially disadvantaged people, and
to support their social inclusion process by inviting them into their communities.

Description of the tool

We created this handbook to motivate various organisations to use sports and
especially capoeira to support the social inclusion process of underprivileged people. Furthermore,
the toolkit provides background information on the project results and the local characteristics of the
participating countries related to this topic, moreover good practices, and useful recommendations
are presented to inspire and guide the reader to organise such inclusive sports events.
