About us

Bhubesi Pride Foundation is a UK registered rugby-for-good charity, operating in Africa

  • It’s delivered four multi-faceted developmental projects in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014
  • We have an experienced board of trustees, from a variety of industry sectors
  • To ensure impact, we’ve teamed up with relevant sponsors and corporate partners, such as G4S and DHL
  • Our ambassadors include Sir Graham Watson, JPR Williams MBE and Bob Skinstad

“I’m really happy to see Bhubesi Pride continue doing what they do so well: Spreading the game at grassroots level, transporting kids to tournament days and delivering life skills talks.”

Oregan Hoskins, IRB Vice Chairman

We select high-calibre volunteers from all over the world to develop rugby in ten African countries and harness its social benefits, targeting three core objectives:

  • UNITE communities through rugby, promoting the sport’s values and life skills
  • EMPOWER and up-skill local staff, male and female, maximising sustainability
  • INSPIRE long-term developmental outcomes via tangible legacy projects, alongside in-country partners;  we also nurture community leaders

We've had 30 volunteers join us from 15 nations around the world (including 2 through Escape The City), spending as many as 114 'man-months' on the ground in 17 rural & urban African locations, and travelling more than 80,000km.

The Work We Do

We're currently embarking on a 3-year project through to 2017. With your help we can achieve sustanible goals in Africa.

Elements of our longer term plan incorporate the following:  

  • Establish multi-functional centres, clubs or academies in pre-determined locations, meeting the needs of the community (sport-for-change, leadership training and business skill-building)
  • Facilitate employment opportunities for suitable in-country staff; as sports leaders, development officers or project managers
  • Responsibly increase the number of participating schools, players, coaches and referees
