“Become strong individuals and build a strong community”

“Andiswa [Andiswa Madikane, Boxgirls South Africa coach] is a true and shining example of what we all both young and old should aspire to be like. She gave up professional boxing and became a fulltime volunteer and coach for Boxgirls South Africa; an international organisation that provides young girls with the support, tools and skills to become strong individuals and to build a strong community and this is done through a boxing programme. “

“Girls attending Boxgirls can stand up in class”

"At the very beginning there were just a couple of learners attending, a little bit sceptical and hesitant, but, as Boxgirls continues, the attitude has changed a lot, because now you have a bigger group. Girls attending Boxgirls can stand up in class, maybe you know her as somebody who is shy, but now as she continues going to this programme, it boosts their confidence."
