We’re excited to announce that we’ve managed to secure a significant amount of funding for C.E.U, the grassroots climbing project that we support in Rio De Janeiro. This has enabled them to gain a space in Rocinha Favela for the first time and so is an important milestone. The space will serve as a meeting point for the local children involved and enable C.E.U to run classes and teach as well as become more established within the community.
Urban Uprising has recently issued a grant for the building of a climbing wall within this space. This will help the children involved with C.E.U reach bigger and better heights in the future. Thanks to all of those that have helped fundraise for us and helped to make this project a reality.
Construction has just started on the wall. More pictures to follow!
