I like e’Pap because it gives you energy, it’s healthy … I just want to be fit and protect myself all the time, and I want to be a world champion [at boxing]. – young rising boxer at Fight with Insight
Started by boxing coach Anton Gilmore and child psychologists Sheri Errington and Luke Lamprecht, Fight with Insight is a way to uplift youth in crimein Johannesburg’s inner city. It gives young men a space to channel their energies in positive ways and learn life skills through boxing; a place where they are welcome. They get e’Pap for lunch. With the largest amateur boxing club in South Africa, Fight with Insight also provides resources to play chess, hold cooking classes, life coaching, and psychological support. Soon after starting on e’Pap, the Fight with Insight community nearly doubled their orders of our porridge – sometimes with children coming in just to eat e’Pap instead of box, too! After all, who can box on an empty stomach?
