Story

I came to Hurghada in Egypt for a holiday two years ago and immediately fell in love with the place.

The Red Sea has some of the most beautiful marine life in the world, but there is also another side to the coastal towns here which is very sad to see.

Egypt’s poverty rate, based on research by CAPMAS, shows that 29.7% of Egyptian families are living in poverty.

Many of the local children come from deprived backgrounds, with little or no education, and nothing to do with their time. Few recreational facilities exist here for them here, with no parks or sports clubs.

Recently I met a group of children in the street, two of whom were fighting with wooden sticks, hitting each other in a game. I suggested that they put on my boxing gloves and try some boxing pad work with me. The children were totally amazed, and it was really obvious that they had already fallen in love with the sport.

So, on the back of this, I decided to put all my efforts into creating a place for these children to train, to learn social skills, to learn respect, self-confidence, teamwork and most importantly, a place for them to feel safe. I want to use boxing as a way to inspire these kids.

I didn't have the best start in life myself with a history of addiction and getting in to trouble with the police, and now I feel so drawn to help these children find a more constructive outlet through sport – taking them off the streets and getting them into the gym.

Sadly, I can't completely put a stop to poverty, but I want to do something to give these children a better future from the start.

I'm prepared to give my time and my future, so that these children can have a future also, but it´s impossible without your help.
