We are a tribe of people transforming social projects, lives, and communities through the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We would love for you to join our Tribe.
Fundraising Project #1: Projeto Gaditas - Phase 2
Projeto Gaditas is an amazing social project in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Eduardo Oliveira and his wife created the social project to help keep kids in the community stay away from gangs and off of drugs. The project was started in 2010 and now in 2019, almost a decade later, he teaches 200 students in two locations for free. Gaditas headquarters is attached to Eduardo’s home where he lives with his wife and two biological children as well as 18 adopted kids. You read that right, 18. Gaditas became an orphanage!
Fundraising Project #2: Forming Champions In Bahia, Brazil - Phase 1
Delio Lima runs Forming Champions social project in Bahia, Brazil. The project provides jiu jitsu training for kids in one of the roughest areas in the state. The project is currently training on mats placed on the side of the street! Jiu Jitsu Tribe is raising money to get the Delio and the kids the academy the deserve. Our goal is ambitious but with the help of our generous donors we believe we can make it happen. The overll objective of the initiative is to complete the following:
- Purchase land for the future academy
- Construct a reliable building to house a training room and bathrooms with showers.
- Purchase new mats for the training room
- 1 year Operational costs (water, electricity, etc)
Jiu Jitsu Tribe has already identified a piece of land for purchase. The land has a run down building which we will need to remove. The first phase of fundraising will be to purchase the land and remove the current building so that we can start new construction in phase 2.
