Les Enfants de L'Ovale is a programme that gives children the opportunity to develop themselves through rugby. The project teaches the children about health and hygiene as well as giving them support with their education.

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.
