As we start the count down to the MTC Knockout Gender-Based Violence project, corporates make pledges through personalities that will be going into the ring.
The project which is also dubbed as “Boxing for social change” will see Namibian media, corporate and entertainment personalities fight for social change.
In an effort to fight Gender-Based Violence, NAMDIA Foundation became the first corporate to sponsor N$ 50 000 towards the cause has selected Luis Munana as their branded personality in line with their standards and reputation.
Speaking at the event, Sven von Blottnitz of Namdia reiterated the importance of collective collaboration as corporates incapacitating necessary stakeholders to address the growing trend of gender-based violence-related crimes.
”Violence against women and children is an extreme manifestation of gender inequality and systemic gender-based discrimination. The right of women and children to live free of violence depends on the protection of their human rights and a strong chain of justice,” he said.
NAMDIA has also purchased one table for N$10 000 for the event day. All ticket sales proceeds from this event will be donated to a charity of MTC’s choice, a charity that fights GBV. Luis Munana will be challenging Dnaff for the cruiserweight title.
MTC’s plan is to allow corporates to brand the boxing attire the personalities will wear on the night of the event and they want to raise an amount of N$800,000 through the project. The event is scheduled for 12 October 2019 at the Windhoek Country Club. General tickets will sell for N$250, while VIP tables will sell for only N$10,000.
