Who we are?
Friends of Rwandan Rugby is a small, innovative charity which teaches the joys of rugby to boys, girls and young adults throughout Rwanda. FoRR’s mission is to promote the growth of participation in all forms of rugby and to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle through rugby. We employ 6 rugby development officers who work in over 90 schools throughout Rwanda
Why Rugby? Why Rwanda?
For all the gruesome statistics from Rwanda’s genocide – and there are many – perhaps the most sobering is that 96% of the child population at the time are thought to have witnessed the bloodshed first hand. Now those children are helping to build a new Rwanda and for some one thing has made that unenviable task just a little easier: Rugby
Rugby as a contact sport helps build very strong relationships & friendships. Players need to be friends with their team mates so they take care of you on the pitch.
What do we do?
FoRR focuses on teaching rugby to children and young adults in schools and communities across Rwanda.
