Photo made on November 13, 2012 shows female boxer Maureen inside the Rhyno gym at the Kataanga slum of Kampala where Helen and Diana Turyanabo, both professional female Ugandan boxers practice their skill. 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.
