Fight for Peace combines boxing and martial arts with education and personal development to realise the potential of young people in communities affected by crime, violence and social exclusion. We provide young people with the tools and support structures they need to become life champions and create positive futures for themselves. We support young people directly at our Academies in Rio de Janeiro and London, and via a global training programme, which equips partner organisations around the globe with the knowledge and resources to better support young people in their communities.

We have developed an integrated and holistic Five Pillars methodology, giving young people all the support they need to become champions in life.

Together with our theory of change we enable young people to take full advantage of the opportunities that are available to them through Fight for Peace’s holistic Five Pillars model.



The Five Pillars are integrated throughout all projects and activities offered by Fight for Peace.

Boxing and Martial Arts

These sports promote respect, discipline, self-control, feelings of belonging and self-esteem, and attract young people to join the programme.


We offer support and educational courses for young people who are outside formal learning environments or who have learning difficulties.


We help young people to access the work market via training, vocational courses and referrals to job opportunities through a network of partners in the private sector.

Support Services

A multidisciplinary social support team provides services including individual mentoring, social, medical and legal referrals, home visits and community outreach.

Youth Leadership

Development of youth leaders via Youth Councils who represent the organisation externally and liaise with staff on strategy and programme development.

Results that speak for themselves
