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.
