Being born in a sociaty where the place of a woman in different domains and sport in particular is given less importance, joseph is very concerned with the issue and dedicated to helping young female talents fulfill their dreams. Ornella Havyarimana is the living proof of a Young female struggling to achieve her dream of becoming a world boxing champion. She is the only female boxer in the whole country who decided to break the social norms and customs which prohibit women from practising combat sport. She has been tormented and criticised by her surroundings and forced to give up boxing , but she resisted against all the prejudices. This is the reason why joseph her coach decides to organise the crowdfunding to help her attend in the AIBA women's world boxing championships as she qualified one month ago.
