Champion: Maggie Alphonsi

Nyumbani Village offers education, support, and shelter to 1000 children orphaned or otherwise affected by HIV and AIDS.

Nyumbani Village has recently established a boy’s rugby team but does not have any provision to support girls who want to play. Whilst the boys are coached, a vast number of girls look on in interest, keen to get involved but not sure how. Thanks to Maggie Alphonsi and the Atlas Foundation, funding is now found for a small project to develop over three years. With potential to be bigger with more funding, Atlas has ensured that it can start and be supported by qualified coaches.
