Thank you to all of those who have supported us during this endeavour, we reached our first target and are now aiming to secure the future of the team. The new kits look great and the players are very proud of them. They cannot wait to wear them at a series of competitions throughout Southern Africa, including a return to the Lusaka 7s which is where the dream started.
We are making an attempt to develop and grow rugby in Malawi after coming across a dynamic team with an electrifying passion for rugby. Despite coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, having to share kits, boots and even playing without mouthguards, these young men play like champions!
Week after week, game after game, these players show up and play their hearts out with their families and friends cheering them on.
We are proud to be mentoring such talented and positive individuals who take such pride in developing their skills on and off the field.
Meeting these skilled players and being welcomed into their community has given me a new sense of passion and it's given me a new purpose.
Now that we have a kit for our players our aim shifts towards covering the operational costs of the team, as well as securing their long term future. The funds will go towards our rugby development initiatives, local league, training, medical expenses, and travel costs such as transport, food, and accommodation when taking the team to the international competitions.
Please join us in supporting these young men and share their story with your networks. Share this post.
We will continue to make supporter jerseys available to those who have donated more than $60 and would like one. Please send me an email with your preferred size and shipping address. Please note that numbers are limited and there may be a waiting period as jerseys are allocated on a first come first serve basis.
A special thank you to SquidgeRugby and r/rugbyunion for the amazing support throughout this campaign.
