MAC - Crianças Unidas is a youth group that was founded with the belief that children and adolescents are human beings that have the right to live to their full potential and express their talent and intelligence through creative and innovative activities. Since MAC was founded in 2001, just two short years following the departure of Indonesian troupes and many years of violence under the Indonesian occupation, many of the children and adolescents were traumatized. Through activities such as capoeira and theatre, the young leaders at MAC hoped that they would be able recover from this trauma and stay away from violent behavior and situations they encountered in their daily lives.
