Project overview

Boxgirls Kenya uses boxing to support at-risk girls in underserved slum communities in Nairobi. It builds confidence and leadership skills for girls to lead safe and dignified lives and to be change agents for the advancement of others. By using non-traditional sport of boxing, BG aims to break gender stereotypes about girls' involvement in male-dominated spaces and have girls valued as equal members of the community, with decision making power over issues that affect them.

Boxgirls has a network of sister organisations including Boxgirls in South Africa, and Germany.
