With Our support, the Mongolian Jiu Jitsu Federation and WE, the club was established at “Magicland”, a child protection center. The goal of the club is to provide more recreational opportunities for girls and boys, especially those who are most vulnerable. It is crucial that every child has access to a variety of options. This will help them develop transferable skills, creativity, and a sense independence. WE and the Government of Mongolia collaborate to create these opportunities.

“I am extremely excited to open this club for Mongolia’s most vulnerable children. Alex Heikens, a former WE Mongolia Representative, says that he is certain that the experience will be very memorable and valuable for these children. His own children have seen the benefits of martial art firsthand, and he says that they are now more confident, less likely to be victims to violence, and can protect them if necessary.”

Jiu Jitsu is more than just a sport. It is also about social skills. As with all sports, the children who attend the classes can make new friends, control their emotions, be patient, and learn how to overcome any challenges they face in life.

Every week, Jiu Jitsu Federation Federation professionals come to the centre to teach students new techniques. WE also created a course in adolescent psychological to assist instructors in their work with young people. Club teachers can use the training to help identify and support kids with mental health issues, or where they can be referred for help.
