What charity is closest to your heart?
A friend I studied with founded the initiative Round 13 (https://round13.org) which uses boxing to promote social change in Africa. They support children and young people in communities affected by poverty and crime through donations of sports equipment, academic scholarships and medical care. Boxing is more than just sports to these children – it motivates them to spend less time in the streets and channel their energy into something positive, giving them a perspective. It’s a great example of social entrepreneurship!
