When Nwabi Jiya, a single mother from Langa was invited to officiate at the karate World Championships in Germany, she felt like her biggest dreams had come true.

A sensei at her own dojo in Langa, Nwabi’s life has been dedicated to the art of karate and she spends her days teaching the local kids about the craft.

“I couldn’t believe it when they asked me to come to the World championships” said Nwabi.

“It really is like a dream come true”. Unfortunately, the trip did not come cheap and she soon discovered that, without help, she would simply not be able to make this dream a reality.

After reading about her story in City Vision, your most popular local newspaper however, World Sports Betting Brackenfell was happy to assist.

“When I saw Nwabi’s story I knew we could help her” said Western cape manager Hilton Hasson.

“We have always believed in giving back to the community and, being a sports betting company, this just felt right”.

World Sports Betting recently opened their first branch in the Western Cape and the company’s reputation of being all about the people is already evident.

World Sports Betting was happy to pay the balance of Nwabi’s trip, making it possible for her to fulfill one of her life dreams. In addition, Nwabi also received a World Sports Betting branded kit to take with her on her trip.

Nwabi leaves for Germany on 21 October 2015 and we wish her all the best. We look forward to hearing more about her trip when she returns.Good luck Sensei!
