Saint George Charity supports rising basketball star Violeta Rojas Narváez as she continues her sporting scholarship in the US

Violeta 2024Part of the Duquesa Charitable Society of St. George’s mission is to help people achieve their full potential, and one such person is local rising basketball star Violeta Rojas Narváez.

We first met Violeta back in 2020 when she had moved from Manilva Basket Base to CAB Estepona, which has a strong female squad. From Estepona she signed to the Catalan team CB Lloret where, in her own words “I had a great experience both in the terms of the treatment I received and for the sporting level at which I found myself, which was well above that at which I had played until then.”

Following her stint in Catalonia, she moved slightly closer to home, when she joined the ranks of Adeba de Córdoba for the 2022-23 season.

Last year the real adventure began, as Violeta took up a sporting scholarship at the State Fair Community College in Missouri, United States.

After a year in Missouri she has been offered a full sporting scholarship to play basketball and study international commerce for her second year at Trinidad State College in Colorado.

The Saint George Charity has helped cover the expenses of Violeta’s moves to Catalonia, Cordoba, and Missouri and is once again proud to be able to continue to provide financial assistance with this latest stage in her career. The donation of 550 euros will cover her medical insurance for the coming year.
