Community of São Gonçalo dos Campos, Bahia State, Brazil
Since many years, the founders of MEK-TECH have been supporting socially disadvantaged children in the poor northeast of Brazil. Our dear friend Ana Böhm grew up in
that region and helps us today that our help actually goes where it is most needed. In December 2016, we have visited the local Capoeira school together. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art combining
elements of dance, acrobatics and music, and is part of the rich Afro-Brazilian cultural heritage in the State of Bahia. The lessons given at that school to the local children and teenagers are many
times the only reasonable alternative to drugs and crime. Together with Ana we were able to provide instruments for the school and also Christmas gifts for the students.
