Julia Maciel, 14 years old, has been living in the favela Curicica Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Julia has been surrounded by insurmountable hopelessness since the day she was born, feed her, give her an opportunity to change her life by putting her on a Brazilian jiu-jitsu mat to compete in the United States showing her what’s truly possible to change the world.
Your sponsorship for Julia will help turn a life of poverty around and you'll smile, watching her succeed!
We want you to SEE what good you are doing!
COSTS (WHERE YOUR FUNDING GOES):
- Meals - Feeding the child athlete every day
- Passport and Visa
- Residence for the program participants while in the U.S. ( 2 weeks)
- Competition Entry Fees
Julia knows that she depends on your generosity to help her become the best she can be. She is humble and appreciative. Her life has been a struggle.
Imagine looking back 10 years from now and seeing a mature Professor Julia, training the next generation of those just like her. What a gift that will be!
She can go far! She is the future! Will you help her get there?
Thank you so much!
