Impact

Making rugby accessible to disadvantaged children. Exposing more Kenyan boys and girls to rugby. Well organised and enjoyable games for many children to participate in. Keeping children off the streets and giving them positive focus.


 

Life Skills Education

 

WHAT IS IT?

Running a unique rugby-related life skill course (6 days) during the school holidays throughout the year. Running Life Skill talks after each rugby session run by SRF coaches.

IMPACT

Better players make better people. Enabling children make better and more effective decisions in life. For example saying no to drugs and under age sex, improving self awareness and respect for oneself to stand up to abusers and ask for help, finding inner drive to work hard and focus on education and career goals. 


Leadership Programme

 
 

WHAT IS IT?

We identify children with the right characteristics and teach them how to be responsible leaders. We run an interactive syllabus where the children develop interpersonal skills, problem solving and improve their confidence and self-esteem. Some of these children will be offered volunteer rugby positions at Shamas.

IMPACT

Developing coaches from within with the right philosophy of giving back to the community. Providing job opportunities and forging new leaders and role models in the communities. 


International Rugby Tours

WHAT IS IT?

Selecting 20 children from across our settlements to play rugby abroad.

IMPACT

Representing Kenya and SRF on International duty. Creating pride amongst family and community. Meeting new friends from different Countries and cultures, Gaining valuable life experiences and education. Building inner belief and confidence in one's ability. Passing on knowledge and leadership to others.
