Água pra todos

In 2017 we will try to renovate our dam on the farm Fazenda Mandacarú, in the river Riachão. The current dam is made of sacks of sand and some ciment, and it breaks down every few years. We want to make a firm concrete dam in the river now and encourage other small farms along the Riachão to do the same.
Having a dam is very important for the region, to have water in the dry season. Building a dam can secure the water supply along the river side. The region has long dry periods. Because many farms have been cutting trees and other vegetation along the river magins the water doesn't stay around but streams away and damps off.
So the plan is not only to build a dam and encourage other farms to do the same, but also to stimulate everybody in the region to restore the vegetation of the river banks and keep the river clean.
If you support this project, you'll also help local small farms and the natural wildlife and vegetation of this region.

Capoeira is a mixture of martial art, dance, acrobatics and music. When you live it, you live!


Berimbau de Ouro is more than learning capoeira. It's also about helping each other.
