Final Project Report

Shipment of Boxing Ring
Shipment of Boxing Ring

Dear Donor, 

 

We would like to thank all of our funders for helping us bring a Boxing ring from Miami down to Managua, NIcaragua. While we are currently waiting for it to pass through customs, once it does it will be sent immediately to Muelle De Los Bueyes, where we will construct it and allow Nicaragua's Olympic hero, Osmar Bravo, to begin working with the youth of his town.  We are hoping that this is only the beginning for this project, and that once we have gained momentum in Muelle, we will expand this project to other areas of Nicaragua.
This ring has the potenial to have a great impact on the youth of Muelle De Los Bueyes, by offering them a fun activity that promotes great life skills, such as responsibility, hard work, and resilience.   This would not have been possible without the efforts of our donors through GlobalGiving. We appreciate all your support. Thank you for your amazing help!

December 2012 Project Update

Dear Donor, 

Thanks to the donations, through the website global giving, our boxing ring and equipment are due to be released by customs soon.  After a long waiting period, we can finally deliver a boxing program to the youth of Muelle De Los Bueyes, run by non other than Olympic Hero, Osmar Bravo.  The boxing ring will provide the chance to teach the youth not only the sport of boxing, but also the values that come with it, such as responsibility, hard work and resilience. Your donation will make a big positive difference in the lives of many young people in Nicaragua who do not have the opportunity to learn boxing. We are sincerely grateful for making a donation to our project. While we only giving the youth of Muelle De Los Bueyes a boxing ring and boxing materials, the results will be much greater than that. With a boxing program to keep the youth occupied, they will be substantially less likely to use drugs and more likely to live a healthy life style. 

Again, many thanks to all and there will be updated pictures to come soon.

Dear Donor,

Thank you very much for your generous donation to our project on Global Giving.  We are proud to announce that we have raised a sufficient amount of funds to bring the shipment of a stand alone boxing ring, and two more boxes full of boxing equipment to Nicaragua!  The equipment, which has been stored in Miami, will be payed for and shipped to Managua by next week.  The boxes will be received by SD4I and FENIBOXA in Managua and then brought to Muelle De Los Bueyes, the hometown of Nicaragua's Olympic hero Osmar Bravo.  This equipment will greatly impact over 100 youth from Muelle De Los Bueyes, by allowing them to create a boxing center for the community, in which kids can go to learn how to box, as well as learn valuable life skills, such as responsibility, work ethic and resiliency.

Again ,thank you very much.
