Fight For Peace

Fight for Peace uses boxing and martial arts combined with education and personal development to realise the potential of young people.

Fight for Peace supports young people in communities affected by crime and violence by creating new opportunities for them and supporting them to make the most of existing opportunities.

In addition to providing new opportunities, their Theory of Change is based on the assumption that a young person’s behavior, situation and the choices they make, are dependent on the way they see themselves, how they relate to others, and how they see their future.

"Upshot is making a big difference to our work at our academies in Rio and London. Being able to translate the system into Portuguese has meant that for the first time both teams are able to use the same system to produce completely aligned and comparable data and reports. We found it easy to customise the system to reflect the way we work and to incorporate our existing monitoring and evaluation tools. Via our international programmes we are also using Upshot to support community based organisations in Jamaica, South Africa, and the UK to build their M&E capacity. Even partner organisations that have never used a computerised systems for M&E before find it very user friendly, and have been immediately able to see the value that the system adds to their work."
