The girl child in sport needs a firm supportive hand, one that will motivate her spiritually (emotionally), financially, physically, materially and otherwise.
Many talented female sports personalities, particularly in the third world developing countries have been neglected and many virtually struggle to make ends meet.
From limited competitions, the girl child in sport also suffers from inadequate training sessions, meagre equipment, discrimination, sexual assaults issues and resilience from parents, guardians or caretaker families to participate in sporting events.
It is upon this background therefore, that, boxing enthusiasts through the Nara Promotionz company and betting firm Paragon Bet have partnered with the management of the Bugolobi based Fast Sports Fusion Arena and Uganda Professional Boxing Commission (UPBC) to organize a charity boxing event meant to solicit financial resources to support the female boxers.
This support will be needed to procure the basic equipment as boxing gear like gloves, face shields, boots, sleves and shorts, mouth guards and the other essentials as food, sanitary pads among others.

“It is very humbling to have fights organized for us so that female boxers are also recognized. I am more than set to face my opponent on that day. I have been training very well” Ndagire confidently stated.
