Atlas All Schools Gauteng Atlas works with SARRDP who are coaching 36 primary and 36 secondary schools across Johannesburg and surrounds. With a strong work force of coaches at hand, these young boys and girls, including those from special needs schools, get to play rugby and enjoy life skills training too. Memorable to see that the girls have taken off over the years and they have enjoyed great success in the tournaments! Project Zulu Newcastle This project is delivering a new playing pitch at a township school in Newcastle. Delivered by Project Zulu, this project meant a great deal to our late friend Chris Neal, and is supported by additional fundraising from the Chris Neal Memorial Fund. Team Talk, Kenya We run TAG rugby alongside education sessions in primary schools to help the boys and girls play together, develop teamwork, and gain a mutual understanding of each other. Team Talk seeks to directly improve the lives of girls, enabling them to be aspirational and play a fuller role in the family and the wider community, while the boys develop a greater level of respect for the girls. Lesotho Rugby Academy Working with the Lesotho Rugby Academy, Atlas will expand the successful LRA programme from 10 weeks to an all year round "All Schools" programme. The Lesotho Rugby Academy teaches kids important life skills whilst introducing them to rugby. It aims to encourage kids to act responsibly, on and off the field. The coaches deliver important education around the rugby, carefully documented in the LRA syllabus. SKRUM, Estwatini Swaziland has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the world, with 28% of the population infected. SKRUM’s mission is to reduce these ﬁgures and offer hope to the youth of Swaziland. We use the game of rugby to engage children and, at the same time, educate them about HIV/AIDS, inspire better leadership in communities, raise awareness of gender violence, and promote the beneﬁts of school and education.
