Having spent the last four years studying conflict and international security, Rwanda has never been far from my thoughts. The more I have read and studied the terrible atrocities committed during the genocide, the more I wanted to find a way to help the people left to deal with the consequences.

Then I saw a tweet from a journalist with a link to Friends of Rwandan Rugby. Suddenly it all became clear, as a manager of a mini rugby team, as well as a qualified referee and coach, here was my opportunity to help in some small way. To help spread the game I love so much by genuinely being able to help children. As the charity themselves put it;

"To support school and community participation in the game of rugby, to promote reconciliation and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle amongst the Rwandan people."

So now I need to raise the money to go, and a lot more if possible too!!  The first £1200 will get me there, hopefully laden with kit donated by the wonderful rugby community at Esher RFC and beyond, and anything more will go to help this wonderful charity in its work.
