The Boys of Kibera by Sam Barker. This is a portrait of their trainer: Konami

In the heart of the Mathare Slum in Nairobi sits a boxing gym. Offering a place to train and a relief from the hardships for the residents of Nairobi’s largest ghetto.

Undugo Trinity Boxing club is one of the fastest growing boxing clubs in Kenya. Trinity boxing club makes champions in the ring and champions in life, currently training over 45 junior boxers (ages 8yrs-14yrs)

Konami is one of the trainers. “We tell them there is life outside boxing. They don’t just come here for the boxing, we give them lessons in life.”
