- #SDG1 NO POVERTY - 10 days to Rio16 (português abaixo) "When I was young, I lived at the margins, but I had a way out: boxing. I started training, and a bit later, my coach gave me the opportunity to give classes. I taught at an “asphalt gym”, frequented by students with money. I thought the people of Cantagalo, where I was born and raised, also deserved an opportunity to learn, so I asked the director of the school to give us a space to practice. We mobilized the community; many people helped construct the school. The project was so successful that outsiders came to train with us, in a sort of “slum-asphalt” exchange. Today, we are known for training famous athletes, and giving youngsters with a bright future ahead of them an opportunity. My job is not only to train champions of boxing, but champions of life." - Claudio Coelho, "Master Claudio", 60 years old. #SDG1 ERRADICAR A POBREZA - 10 dias para Rio16 "Quando jovem, vivia à beira da marginalidade, mas tive uma porta de saída: o boxe. Comecei a treinar e, um tempo depois, meu mestre me deu a oportunidade de dar aulas. Passei a ensinar numa academia do asfalto, freqüentada por alunos com dinheiro. Achei que as pessoas do Cantagalo, onde nasci e cresci, também mereciam a oportunidade de treinar, então pedi à diretora da escola de lá que nos cedesse um espaço. Mobilizamos a comunidade e muitas pessoas ajudaram a construir a academia. O trabalho deu tão certo que pessoas de fora passaram a subir para treinar com a gente, numa espécie de ‘intercâmbio favela-asfalto’. Hoje, somos conhecidos por formar grandes atletas e damos oportunidade a jovens que têm um futuro incrível pela frente. Mais do que campeões de boxe, meu trabalho é formar campeões da vida” – Claudio Coelho, “Mestre Claudio”, 60 anos #HumansOfRio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #boxing #cantagalo FBERJ - Federação de Boxe do Estado do Rio de Janeiro Confederação Brasileira de Boxe United Nations Development Programme - UNDP PNUD Brasil United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP) UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo - PNUD SDG Action Campaign Humans of MY World about an hour ago
