ChildFund Sport for Development

ChildFund Rugby provides children and young people with opportunities to play, learn and grow.

Using integrated rugby and life skills curricula, young people from vulnerable communities are equipped to overcome challenges, inspire positive social change, and take active leadership roles within their communities.

Under ChildFund Australia’s guidance, all rugby development programs contribute to achieving gender equality, reducing inequality, and ending violence against children, reflecting targets within the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Participants also develop critical social and emotional skills which help them to achieve personal goals, build empathy, manage emotions, develop positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

ChildFund Rugby partners to deliver high quality, evidence-based social outcomes. ChildFund Rugby’s biggest Rugby for Development program, Pass It Back, is a key component of the Rugby World Cup 2019 Impact Beyond legacy program.
