RUGBY COACHING IN SWAZILAND!
Rugby coaching in Swaziland
This placement is for those who have a passion for the game of rugby and are happy to share their skills and knowledge teaching the children and adults in this lovely country. Swaziland is southern Africa’s best kept secret, about the size of Wales, normally green and hilly but, sadly, with the worst figures for HIV/AIDS infection in the world.
This charity has introduced the game and passion of rugby into more than 600 schools and also runs coaching during the holidays in the communities of Swaziland. Rugby is used as a platform to introduce their educational and social programs in particular educating children and adults on HIV/AIDS awareness through both the game of rugby, presentations and handing out informative pamphlets.
