Teacher at Vuzamanzi Primary School

“We could see how the children like it, they were anxious to attend and you could see that they were happy to be a part of the Boxgirls. With mathematics we could see they improved when we did our assessment and you could hear from them that they were helping one another. They always come to us to give us feedback how Boxgirls is doing. They also come on Saturdays, they will come and they will help one another. They love it. (…) I will recommend Boxgirls to any school. (…) You can see what it is doing to these kids. It’s not only Maths and English, but even their self-esteem has been built, they are more confident than before, they can express themselves, so I will recommend it to other teachers.”

throwing punches has changed her life

“Medikane began boxing when she was 12 and soon competed professionally. At the hall, she now guides younger girls on how to box as part of the Boxgirls International training programme, launched in Cape Town in 2009 by executive director Heather Cameron. The programme has focused on boxing training for girls in Berlin, Germany, since 2001. A second training centre opened in Nairobi, Kenya in 2007 and the third was initiated in Cape Town after Cameron met University of the Western Cape (UWC) sports studies academics, who wanted to work with the programme here. For Medikane, throwing punches has changed her life for the good; [...] Medikane is living proof of the concept as she, along with her male counterparts, organises local events. And the boxing training she offers is complemented by workshops on local government, media skills and career advice.“

It was way beyond what I ever expected

“In an extraordinary display of positivity I saw how much Sport Relief projects help build women's confidence. It was way beyond what I ever expected. These women have been through so much, yet they have more positivity than I have seen in years.“
