Capoeira is a history of the oppressed, fighting for their freedom, a martial art disguised as a dance to empower the enslaved. Used in the struggle for freedom, it proved to be a revolutionary force changing the course of history. With time Capoeira evolved into a way of life, one that can bring people together and strengthen the bonds of community. It is because of this rich & proud history that we promote this magical artform.
Slavery still affects more than 40 million people worldwide, more than at any other time in history. We believe everyone, everywhere has the right to a life free from slavery. But right now, millions of children and adults are trapped in bonage in every single country in the world.
The Capoeira roda (circle) is considered a very sacred space where dances and songs are performed to communicate messages from master to disciple and thus creating a sense of companionship, brotherhood and identity to an ever expanding community.
We believe technology can be a force for good that can end isolation, loneliness and we aim to join the fight against slavery in all its forms. Through the ethical use of technology for the good of all stakeholders, we hope to promote companionship, belonging and showcase & promoting the way of life that is capoeira.
Our promise is to donate a minimum of 10% of our profits to partner charities. One such partner is the CureFoundation in the Philippines that provides shelter to survivors of online exploitation and a safe place to heal and recover from the trauma and abuse of their past.
Like you, we hate the negative relationship with technology serving only as a distraction from self-enlightenment and we believe people are best when we are together, as a community.
Growing a community is our mission and La laue is all about using technology to fight against isolation, inequality and inequity and to fight for freedom for all.
La Lalue is a commercial social enterprise with a share of the profits going towards fighting modern day slavery. The apps themselves will be free to users with commission made on transactions. Teachers of classes will be able to sell tickets, subscriptions to classes and goods via the teachers admin app portion of the system.
The first version of both the teachers admin app and the capoeira focused social media, will launch at the end of the year 2022 and beginning of 2023 respectively.
Please stay tuned for more information.
