PulseBet, a leading sports technology company in Uganda, has partnered with the Tmoly SMB Foundation to donate a 10,000-liter water tank to the East Coast boxing community home located in the slum area of Naguru.
Olympian Shadir Musa Bwogi is the brain behind the SMB Foundation.
The donation will cater to over 200 boxers who face difficulties accessing clean, safe and healthy water in their community.
The lack of access to clean water has been a significant challenge for the East Coast boxing community home.

The boxers will be able to concentrate better on their training and improve their performance in the sport.

“We are excited to partner with the Bwogi Foundation to provide access to clean water for this boxing community. We believe that this donation will go a long way in enabling these boxers to lead more positive and productive lives.

Bwogi expressed excitement about the partnership. “Our Foundation is delighted to partner with PulseBet creating access to clean and safe water for the boxers that we train and support. Our goal is to support the youth in improving their livelihoods and communities through sport instead of crime, and we are glad that PulseBet has come on board to provide a boost through the provision of clean water to this boxers’ community." Bwogi said.
