Projects

Situated on the equator, on the east coast of Africa, Kenya’s climate varies widely across the country – with land rising from sea-level, to fertile highlands, to hot and arid deserts. Agriculture plays an important role in the economy, though unpredictable rainfall patterns can seriously affect its stability.

Corporate CSR

TRT have been working in Kenya since 2009, when we ran a “corporate training tour” with Salesforce and delivered a programme in a slum on the outskirts of Nairobi. This tour, to the Kibagare slum, proved highly successful, and the sport has continued to increase in popularity. We now have regular programmes running in five key areas of the country, including Nairobi, Mombasa, Nanyuki and West Pokot. As a result, we now have more than 16 girl’s schools in Kenya now playing competitive rugby!

Successful Partnerships

As our whole ethos is based around combining education with sport, it was a logical step to partner with an organisation called Exploring Global Health Opportunities to help deliver a woman’s health programme in Kenya. The TeamTalk programme, designed to tackle key issues affecting the Maasai community, is a fine example of how we are able to use tag rugby to break down barriers and create a better, more inclusive environment for learning. Everyone has a lot of fun too!

Engaging England Rugby

In 2012 TRT convinced the RFU to send their England Counties team on Tour to East Africa – where they played fixtures in both Uganda and Kenya. During their ‘down-time’, the team participated in TRT community tag programmes, engaging with children from challenging backgrounds. For many of the team members, playing test rugby in Kampala and Nairobi was a once in a lifetime experience, however, many of them reflected on their time working with the children as their most enduring memory of the tour.

Profound Impact

We are very proud of the positive outcomes from our activity here, especially for the women and girls who, as a direct result of engaging with TRT, are able to play a fuller role in the family and wider community.

We've made a real difference…
