Pledge to Take Action

In Peru, a community of young people come together to learn Muay Thai, a national sport and martial art, also known as Thai boxing. Alto Peru is transforming the lives of children in Chorrillos – Lima, Peru. Using Muay Thai as a vehicle for social change, they’re creating free learning opportunities and providing safe spaces for the children of their community!
