Canadian PM becomes our 100th CIS member!

The Canadian PM, Stephen Harper, was in town on Tuesday and picked  Casa São José Community Centre that the Canadian International Society supports, to visit. We fund Marcio's, the capoeira teacher, degree so he can continue to teach the kids at this community center in Jardim São Luis. He watched the capoeira group perform, and drummed along with them, and the kids were fantastic, became the 100th official member of the CIS (!!) and doggy-bagged his churrasco to eat on his way to the airport.
