Who We Are

Boxgirls was set up to build on the work started by a boxing coach, Analo Anjere (popularly known as Priest), who had been coaching young men and women in the Eastland’s area of Nairobi for many years. Priest was coaching boys and two girls came to the window of the Kariobangi social hall and said they wanted to box like the boys. Priest overheard them and got them to come along to train with the boys. During the post election violence in 2008 girls and women were raped in the violence and chaos and many people were left traumatized in Boxgirls’ community. It was on the back of this despair that Boxgirls grew further, providing a safe place for girls, to learn about life and talk about their issues. READ MORE
