The South Africa All Schools programme works to improve education, reduce crime and increase employment for boys and girls in townships across South Africa. It is championed by Stefan Terblanche and delivered by the South Africa Rugby Legends Association.

The Atlantis district of Boland, north of Cape Town, was our first All Schools project in South Africa, starting in late 2017. In January 2018 Jason Leonard and Paul Rendall visited the initial project and in June 2018 the England Rugby Squad visited along with High Commissioner Nigel Casey. 

In July 2018 two further All Schools programmes opened in two townships south east of Johnannesburg. Schools here often lack sports facilities but Atlas has permission to use, for free, sports facilities built in 2010 but since standing empty. Kids from four of the schools in each township can walk to these facilities for their training.

We have plans to continue expanding across Africa where funds allow. Each All Schools cluster costs £4000 per year, meaning that each of the 400 children involved get rugby coaching, improved educational and employment prospects for only £10 per child per year.
