Capoeira lessons for the children of DR Congo – BBC News

Disadvantaged children of the Democratic Republic of Congo are taking lessons in capoeira – a mix of martial arts and dance associated with Brazil.

Dance teacher Yannick N’salambo Walters hopes that by giving free lessons in the discipline, he can offer the children hope and a temporary family.

In Kinshasa, the capital of DR Congo, tens of thousands of children beg on the streets each day.

Yannick has been speaking to the BBC’s Maud Jullien.
