Champion: Joel Stransky

Chaired by Trustee Neil Blair, the Atlas All Schools programme takes the success of the CBRE All Schools in England with the RFU and spreads it around the globe.

Israel is a country that experiences national tension like no where else in the world. We work in poor and divided communities where children are often mixed up in the country's politics and are the victim of conflict.  We've introduced rugby to children from ages 5-18 as a development project to improve relations between the different children who all come from differing backgrounds. By offering the values of rugby to kids around the world brings a new future of hope, health and opportunity by allowing them to build social bonds and benefit from the life values that only rugby can teach.

The project started in partnership with Rugby Israel in September 2017. There are already trial programmes in India, Argentina and South Africa with promising early results.
