The history of Anajó


Hailton Francisco da Silva founded the capoeira club „ideal capoeira“ in the year 2002. From the beginning he supports the project ideel and also financially.

He and several members were the initiators for the establishment of the association of Anajó Austria in July 2010. Based in Feldkirch Austria.

There is a close cooperation with the Club „IDEAL CAPOEIRA“ and the Club Anajó in Guarabira Brasil.

Desicions concerning the projekt be taken by the board of Directors at meetings.


Our Problem


In addition to in-depth school tutoring and homework, the children from the ages 2-16 they also get some psychological support by the help of  the traditionall dance-fight capoeira.


In Return for the free tutoring and capoeira teaching and also one free meal a day, the Kids of Anajo have to go to School. A fair deal. Through this regulated daily routine, the charme of the Street, the drugs and the crime could be defused.

Unfortunately we can care only a small group of children. Because of financial and spatial reasons. From the Brazilian State we get no aid because anajo will not commit to a political party. In South American Countries it is necassary to do that.

Anajo deliberately doesn´t want that, to remain independent. To make free decisions.


Anajo is looking for more partners for the sustainable financing oft he project.


(Our new projekt, the building of a new school for Anajo starts in the year 2014. The school will offer more space for the kids. A big challange, that needs lot of patience and also financial aid. )
