BOXING FOR GOOD
In partnership with Gulf for Good and in support of Tibetan Children’s Villages, Ladakh, India support our Boxing for Good Campaign.
In the lead up to the Spartans White Collar Boxing event on Saturday 26th November, 18 White Collar boxers will be training rigorously for 10 weeks for their place in the ring. Please support them and our cause to raise funds for the Tibetan Children’s Villages.
Tibetan Children’s Villages is an integrated community in exile for the care and education of orphans, destitute and refugee children from Tibet.
This campaign will support Tibetan Children's Village, Ladakh. We will be aiming to renovate 18 family homes including installing kitchens, electricity and renovating 4 hostels for teenage students along with the communal kitchen and eating area.
At present children in the village cook on the floor and study on their beds. This project will benefit more than 1,561 students currently under the charity’s care, 500 students under our further study programme and 300 senior citizens, in addition to providing better resources to deal with the severe winter weather conditions.
The main kitchen of SOS TCV Ladakh was built initially in 1980’s. It is currently serving food to more than 1700 children and staff members at the main campus. However, due to the decrease in the number of children and the change in policy of SOS TCV having a separate kitchen at each SOS family home, strength to serve food from this kitchen is now downsized to 300 people during the normal days and 1700 or more during the important days. Likewise, there is a separate kitchen for every home having 20 children and one foster mother.
