Sport Benefits Everyone

Coach | July 12th, 2011 - 3:33 pm

Watching disabled men and women gain mental and physical strength from sports is both humbling and inspiring.

Disabled Sports USA helps disabled people benefit from sport – reminding all of us that we should get more active, and that there are NO excuses for not exercising.

At Malaika Youth Project, we get a lot of satisfaction from tailoring non-contact boxing, football and other sports, for the disabled. The benefits for everyone are enormous. Whether you’re fit, inactive, overweight, or suffer from a serious disability, you can experience the joy of sports.

Don’t let anything hold you back; come join us for the summer boxing sessions!

Top Boxer Nick Otieno Helps Malaika Youth Project

Coach | May 28th, 2011 - 2:32 am

Nick Otieno

A supporter of Malaika Youth Project, Nick Otieno has set a fine example to young people and aspiring athletes in the United Kingdom and Kenya.

His success reinforces the message of sports, clean living and discipline. He has kindly sparred with one of our talented and promising pupils, Shane Browne, who has been training with us since last winter. Such friendly bouts are highly educational for young sportspeople.

Nick Otieno has challenged Jamie McDonnell for the Commonwealth Title, and the match will take place on 28 May 2011 in Sheffield. The much-anticipated match will air on SkySports and across Africa. Our gratitude for his good work and best wishes go out to him and his team.

Sports for All

Coach | April 12th, 2011 - 3:50 am

(Sneak peeks of our Notebook – download our Newsletter free)

This winter, it was a special pleasure to welcome disabled young men and women to a new sport.

Young people got great results in a very short time – better ability to communicate, calmer, and less tired and stressed,  while feeling stronger and better about themselves. Boxercise gives you a fast boost in confidence and physical strength, so if you haven’t already, give this sport a try!

The four month program of free sports was generously sponsored by PlaySport London and the borough of Newham.
