Abstract

Capoeira4Refugees is an NGO that uses the Afro-Brazilian art-form of Capoeira to promote
psychosocial well-being in children affected by conflict and occupation. Capoeira4Refugees
introduced the Most Significant Change (MSC) methodology to monitor and evaluate project
implementation and impact across two locations in the Middle East. Analysis of interviews
conducted with five field staff revealed that in line with, and building on previous research,
MSC became an empowering tool that led to staff development. The potential for MSC to
build staff reflexivity, independence and leadership has implications for other organisations
working in conflict areas, particularly in situations of remote management.
