Boxgirls South Africa works as a partner organisation of Boxgirls International. Boxgirls International is a network of sport for development projects around the world that use boxing as a catalyst for social change for women and girls.
The programme works with partner projects to deliver excellent coaching through club and school programmes where female participants develop life skills and self-defense skills, and take active roles in schools and community leadership. As an advocacy organization, Boxgirls International reaches out to decision makers in business, government and media to make the case for women’s sport, economic and social participation.
Boxgirls South Africa seeks out the most troubled areas to locate projects and are very proud to be on the front line fighting gender-based violence in South Africa.
