Les Enfants de L'Ovale trains teachers to be rugby coaches, and rugby coaches to be teachers.

The ability to provide both teaching and safe rugby coaching is instrumental to the Atlas All Schools programme.

Philippe Sella's approach through Les Enfants de L'Ovale is an efficient and effective way of meeting these ambitions. Through his training programme, hundreds of teachers work across Africa, reaching thousands of children. Atlas has supported this programme in Morocco and Madagascar, but the reach of the teachers, and thus the benefits to children, is far greater than that across French-speaking Africa.
