The IRC is partnering with the UK-based charity Bidna Capoeira to teach capoeira — a challenging Afro-Brazilian sport and art form — to at-risk children in West Bank refugee camps and schools. Proponents say it engenders a positive philosophy and outlook on life—one that is based on respect for the self and others.
The American Institute of Philanthropy gives the IRC an A+.
Charity Navigator gave the IRC its highest rating of four stars.
