UGANDA-POVERTY-SPORT-BOXING

Helen Turyanabo, 23, is seen during a boxing training session at a gym in a slum of the Ugandan capital, Kampala on December 12, 2012. Helen, 23, along with her younger sister Diana, 20, living in a trash ridden slum area, are two young women who stand out amongst their neighbours as they both are professional boxers, literally trying to fight their way out of poverty. After a man tried to rape Helen, the older of the two sisters, it inspired her to learn how to fight inorder defend herself, and despite recently winning a medal in an East African Regional Championship, Helen and Diana still have to collect garbage to sell to get money for food for themselves and nearly 20 other people, cramped into two rooms with no water or electricity.
