MANGLE´S Funding goal
The challenge for mangle, a capoeira academy, is related to the one of Unión Latina. The priority is to keep the teachers part of Mangle in order to maintain the process and development of the students. The workshops develop a methodology to keep teenagers and students away from violence. Teachers were former mangle students and beneficiaries, it is common that once they get money offers they abandon the process they started with the project. Our goal is to gather $6.880USD that they will share with the 25 teachers during the year
