Fight for Peace
09 November 2016
Through martial arts, education, social support, youth leadership development and access to job market via training and referrals, these young people are leaving valuable life skills to shape their personal development for the future.
When the ACF visited the Fight for Peace base in Newham and met with its youth panel, teh trustees were so impressed it agreed to fund 30 ‘Junior Twilight’ sessions. These sessions combine boxing, personal development and mentoring and act as an early intervention to 7-11yr olds who are at risk of exclusion from school. The sessions are delivered in partnership with schools, and referrals are actively sought from other agencies.
Fight for Peace has academies in Rio and London and is present in over 25 countries thanks to its network of partner organisations.
