Project Case Study

Team Talk Kenya

The results from the partnership with Team Talk and TRT have been outstanding.

Team Talk is a fun, educational project run by TRT in Kenya. Put quite simply, the principles of Tag Rugby are applied to educative workshops for young girls and boys – exploring communication and goal-setting skills within an open and friendly learning atmosphere.

Having experienced working together as equals within the structure of Tag Rugby training, young people feel more able to freely discuss contemporary issues that affect their daily lives.

The curriculum is based largely around leadership, covering:

  • Self-discovery and self-esteem
  • Strengths and values
  • Gender balance
  • Communication and decision-making
  • Goal setting

In the Summer of 2015, Team Talk was run in two locations in Kenya, with over 300 children and young people taking part. For the children participating, the ability to work as a team translates perfectly to the importance of supporting each other in everyday school life.

Through Team Talk, young people are able to improve their understanding of a bigger society – their confidence grows, and long-term aspirations are raised.
