making interviews in "San Genaro"
Since we started using sports to create social change, we have seen great impact.
Through surf and muaythai we have been promoting safe spaces and positive behaviors among children and youth exposed to social risk.
When we started this crowdfunding campaign we were also engaging with potential donors to present our work and try to get the needed fundings to keep running our sport for development program.
Although we did not reach what we expected through the platform, we have been receiving donations in different ways, and we are happy to share that our programs are running succesfully.
At the end of September we will start a Surf Therapy program with 40 children from three different slums from Chorrillos, Lima. This program will be implemented in collaboration with Waves for Change, the Universidad Continental and the Municipality of Chorrillos. During the last two weeks we started mapping the two new communities, interviewing parents and local actors to define with which children we will be working according to the level of risk they are exposed to.
We will keep working to provide safe spaces, skills to cope with stress and exciting activities through sports, to as many children as possible.
