Mary Kom Regional Boxing Foundation, was registered and established under a Charitable Trust , in the year 2006 (Regd. No. 2477/2006). It was setup as Non Profit organisation and a pioneering initiative by London Olympics 2012 Bronze Medallist, Pugilist and Padma Bhushan awardee Ms. MC MARY KOM and her husband Mr. K. Onler , with the aim of a social responsibility of promoting the Boxing sport amongst underprivileged Youth in of Manipur and other parts North East India.
Most sportspersons in Manipur come from poor and middle class families with little understanding of Sporting Careers and financial implications. Right Guidance and Motivation was rare , which would lead to lack of motivation to work towards their Sporting Dreams and Career…
Mary Kom, too had experienced similar hardships and the challenges in her early days of sports career. This fact remained the simple motivation to establish the boxing academy under the aegis of the Foundation with the MOTTO ; “Train up a child in the way he should go” to guide youth with potential and help them to achieve their Sporting dreams.
The initial phase involved humble beginnings with a handful of students picked from a village by M.C. Mary Kom, who had potential but no access to a platform to nurture and prove their talents in a productive and competitive environment.
The foundation avails free coaching with free lodging and food and additional expenses involved during competitions. As an endeavour to being a self-supporting foundation, Mary herself borne the entire expenses incurred in food and lodge besides a help received from TRUSTEES, LOCAL GOVT support and Patrons from Business and Banking Community in kind, contributions from well-wishers and SAI Extension Scheme in the recent years
