Fight With Insight

Fight with Insight (FWI) was established with the vision of creating a safe place for the children of Johannesburg, which is an area with high need and limited resources.

Studies have shown that safe spaces with caring adults are one of the most significant protective factors in sport for development programmes for youth at risk (Draper, Errington, Omar & Makhitha, 2012). 

FWI aims to contribute positively to healthy lifestyles and sustainable communities for the children in Johannesburg. The programme focuses on providing a mindful boxing programme for at-risk children. It includes needs-based interventions; nutritional, educational and psychosocial support; follow-on interventions for youth in conflict with the law; life skills programmes for all children who attend the boxing programme; and mentorship programmes for those in need of opportunities to gain further education, employment skills and employment.
