Fijian-Kenyan student visit

As part of its community work Rugby Club Luxembourg is welcoming 6 or 7 foreign students to study, live, and play Rugby in the Grand Duchy for about 10 weeks in early 2018 – two of the boys live in Kibera, Africa’s largest township, in Nairobi Kenya (photo below) while the other 4/5 come from villages in Fiji.

The young players will stay with host families, study at local English language schools and attend local churches. They will be involved in a cultural visit so that Luxembourg students and RCL members can learn about their Rugby traditions, family backgrounds and daily lives in Fiji and Kenya. We want to send the boys back to their respective clubs with 250kg of Rugby equipment so their communities also benefit from the project. We have host families in place but seek help in funding the Flights (€9,500), Medical Insurance (€2,400), Training Equipment (€600), Warm Clothing (€800), Travel costs to school (€450), Food (€1,500), Excursions /activities (€1,750), Equipment to send back to their communities (+/- €2,500).  

All funds are paid into a dedicated social fund account of the club and any surplus will be used for future projects with refugees and youth offenders.
