The Gloves of Hope

is a non-profit organization providing assistance to kids, women and coaches in the world of boxing. We believe that by promoting better sport and living conditions for young boxers and their families, we can contribute to their social integration.

Our mission

We believe that accompanied and monitored boxing will provide kids with better chances to succeed later in their life.

We support kids and coaches on the ground. We also assist Cuban women interested in boxing and stand behind their right to exercise this sport in adequate facilities. In this context, we would like to contribute to opening the first boxing school for women in the country.

Our dream is that women in Cuba will soon be allowed to participate in national and international competitions.

The Gloves of Hope contribute to a better world

OUR RIGHT TO FIGHT

All over the world women too practice boxing. Cuba is the only country where no women are members of the national boxing federation. The lack of an organised system or well-developed infrastructure makes it impossible for women in Cuba to practice boxing competitively. By providing them with respective boxing facilities Cuban women will be able to enter national and international championships in future

History and our inspiration

Over the past 50 years, Cuba has dominated in Olympic boxing despite the embargo and lack of infrastructure. All over the world, women too practice boxing. Cuba is the only country where no women are members of the national boxing federation.

Projects

Our team is aware how difficult the situation in Cuba is. We donate new boxing equipment to various boxing schools, coaches and kids.

Together with the Cuban Boxing Federation we assist in developing boxing infrastructure in the country and to open a boxing school exclusively for women.

Boxing accompanied and monitored by professionals will provide kids with better chances to succeed later in life. Discipline, self-esteem and the values of the sport will be of crucial importance, as in addition to the sporting element, they will improve the kids’ psychological development.
