MTC knockout for change boxing project raises over N$800 000

Mobile Telecommunications giant MTC has raised over N$800 000 with its MTC knockout for change boxing project.
The event ignited robust discussions on the ever increasing scourge of gender-based violence (GBV).
Chief human resource and corporate communications officer Tim Ekandjo told NBC News that MTC has invited all sponsors to form part of the selection committee, the committee will choose the charities or individuals who will benefit from the funds raised.
"We will put out a notice inviting all GBV organisations to submit proposals and this committee will decide," said Ekandjo.
He further said that the committee will apply their minds on which company or companies to give it based on the proposals received.
N$500 000 were generated from sponsors that pledged N$50 000 on behalf of boxers.
N$300 000 from the VIP table sales and N$41 320 from standard ticket sales, amounting to N$841 320. 00
