About us

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

  • It delivers multi-faceted developmental projects every year
  • We have an experienced board of trustees, from a variety of industry sectors
  • To ensure impact, we‚ have teamed up with relevant sponsors and corporate partners, such as G4S, Czarnikow, The Bill McLaren Foundation, St James's Place, Norton Rose Fulbright, The Atlas Foundation, Inmarstat, Investec, DHL and Errea Sportswear

We select committed volunteers from all over the world to develop rugby in Africa 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

Visit our website for more information and inspiration:

We've had over 200 volunteers join us from 20 nations around the world (including several through Escape The City), spending as many as 150 'man-months' on the ground in 17 rural & urban African locations, and travelling more than 90,000km.


The Work We Do

We're currently embarking on a 7-year project through to 2021. With your help we can achieve sustainable 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) We have already begun our first major build project just outside Lilongwe, Malawi - opening in November 2019.
  • 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

YOU can volunteer for as little as £320 a week - the subsidised volunteer fee converse meals, accommodation, training, project facilitation, teamwear and in-country travel.
