Shaping young lives, developing people and learning and sharing knowledge with local coaches
Rugby in Kenya, including its first recorded fixtures, dates back to the early 1900s with the union and clubs, such as Nondescripts, forming in the 1920s. Today domestic rugby is competitive and, in the sevens format, the national team’s success on the world stage provides a source of inspiration for young players. In Nairobi, we work closely with the Shamas Rugby Foundation, who, like Bhubesi Pride Foundation, sees rugby as more than just a sport. Shamas works with over 1,500 children, many from highly challenging and abusive home environments. Programs aim to build players’ confidence and teach life-skills to help them make better life decisions and greater contributions to their communities.
Get a glimpse into one of our partnering schools, meet Shamas coach, Linet, and see former Saracens & Namibia national player, Jacques Burger, coaching with us in Nairobi
We’re strengthening our relationship with the Shamas Rugby Foundation, lengthening our annual volunteer coaching programs in Nairobi, providing funded opportunities for Shamas coaches to travel with the charity to other African countries and we’re exploring new ways with Shamas to support future initiatives.
