Patricia Esteve: The Fragile Strength

Empowering "boxgirls" in Kenya

“My series of portraits from this urban sprawl of Nairobi aims to capture the fragility and the strength of these young girls – the challenges they face to take part in Boxgirls and the path to success.” Patricia Esteve.

“Boxgirls International links innovative projects around the world using boxing as a catalyst for social change. The skills they learn in the ring, improve their strength and resilience, allow them to better negotiate the urban environment and advance further in their schooling, family and career.”
