Fight for Peace supports young people across Academies in Rio de Janeiro and London. Our flagship Academy opened in 2000 in Complexo da Maré – a complex of favelas based in Rio de Janeiro’s North Zone – and this was followed by the opening of our London Academy in Newham, East London, in 2007. A further two satellite Academies were opened in Complexo da Maré in 2011, totalling four Academies overall.


Fight for Peace’s Global Network currently works in 24 countries. Our network of partner organisations are all aligned in their use of boxing and martial arts to enable young people to reach their potential.
