NOC Cape Verde brings Federations together in crime prevention project “Life Champions”

The Cape Verdean Olympic Committee, in partnership with the international organisation Fight for Peace, will bring together the Cape Verdean Federations of combat sports and martial arts, namely Boxing, Judo, Taekwondo and Karate, in a single project aimed at preventing violence and crime, mainly in the city of Praia.

The project called Life Champions is already open for registration and will provide a network of 25 AM&DC (martial arts and combat sports) trainers with tools to reach young people with risk behaviours and bring them into the world of combat sports, using their adrenaline and strength for their physical and mental wellbeing, besides their social inclusion.

The memorandum of understanding with the Federations was signed on 11 November with a view to implementing the project.
