Avanti Communications Group plc (Avanti) today announces a new partnership with British cruiserweight boxing star, Isaac Chamberlain, ahead of his upcoming fight on September 10th.
The 27 year old, who boasts an impressive 12-1 record, will work with Avanti to promote the right to education for all children. Both Avanti and Chamberlain understand how critical it is that every child can learn and win in all areas of their lives.
Avanti recently announced its support for a new Global Partnership for Education (GPE) initiative to advance girls’ education in Africa. The initiative uses social media marketing as a tool to drive behaviour change around social norms keeping girls from school.
At the beginning of June, Chamberlain joined the GPE’s international #PoetryforLocals x #RaiseYourHand campaign to draw attention to both the global education crisis and the disappearance of local businesses due to COVID-19.
Commenting on the partnership, Isaac Chamberlain said: “Just like training to be a pro boxer, a child’s education needs to be consistent and to take place in the best possible environment with all the necessary tools available. That’s why I’m so happy to work with Avanti to fight for all kids, both in Britain and around the world, to be able to learn and achieve their potential.”
Avanti CEO, Kyle Whitehill, added: “Isaac’s resilience in the face of monumental challenges is well documented, so he truly embodies the hope and determination we have for improving the chances of young people around the world. His passion for education aligns perfectly with Avanti’s commitment to facilitating access to quality learning for all, so that no one is left behind. We wish him the best of luck for his bout on September 10th.”
