Our story began with a simple powerful vision
Fight for a Kid is the program for a charity that works directly with underprivileged children who are living in poverty and may not have access to basic necessities, such as food, clean water, sanitation, medicine, shelter, education, books, fun, family, laughter and love. Fight for a kid, today helps more than 60 children and adolescents in the “ghettos” (favelas) “Curicica” Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where they are training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a church that had been built by generous donations. The project is to provide an opportunity for humble children and young people allowing those discoveries to influence the trajectory of their lives and those of their families. Through the practice of Jiu Jitsu these children has been discovering a power to change their circumstance and situation, a power to choose a good way forward, not one riddled by drugs and violence.
