THE BEAST FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH RUGBY AU CŒUR TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE
Rugby au Coeur is an official charity of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, which is contested every four years between the top international teams. The partnership provides scholarships for six deserving school learners in four of South Africa’s nine provinces and a cultural exchange programme for another ten students in South Africa and France. The aim of the partnership is to promote education and sport for young people.
The scholarship programme gives six learners access to high quality education, unlocking their potential in desired fields of study and sports. It will also help the learners gain invaluable experience that will subsequently open doors for them in the future when they further their studies at tertiary institutions.
The learners are Nqobile Mafilika, Yonwaba Brikwa, Elihle Khake, Kwakhanya Gobe, Tshegofatso Gasenewe and Zewande Mncwabe.
Five high achievers of The Beast Foundation Annual Rugby Bootcamp 2022 are set to travel to France to watch the 2023 Rugby World Cup in September.
The partnership also offers a cultural exchange programme which will see five The Beast Foundation Annual Rugby Bootcamp 2022 high achievers travel to France to attend the 2023 Rugby World Cup in September and participate in a programme with local youth French school, Ecole des XV. Five learners from Ecole des XV, France will also have an opportunity to visit South Africa and participate in The Beast Foundation’s Annual Rugby Bootcamp 2023, which will take place in July 2023.
