Caue Da Silva competing in a competition
with a kimono donated from England
The cost of a Jiu Jitsu competition there in Brazil costs between R60-100. Some federations also require athletes to pay an additional fee for an affiliation card.
Acquiring a kimono can be one of the biggest things keeping kids from starting Jiu Jitsu. Finding a decent priced kimono that meets competition requirements can be quite difficult in fact. TerereKidsProject is happy to count on the support of Cascagrossa Kimonos who provides kimonos to the project for only R100.
After each training session that project provides sandwhiches, cookies, and juice to the kids from the community. The snack program is the biggest expense that the project incurs. Due to financial limitations the program was suspended until just recently. It costs R350 a month to keep the snack program running.
We are currently working on sponsorship deals to fund a free English class for the student´s and teachers at Terere Kid´s Project
