01/08/2013 Nick and Mike; Super Volunteers

18 year olds, Nick and Mike contacted FoRR back in September last year when they were searching for a rugby coaching and personal development experience for their university summer break. Both are good rugby players representing their county at Under 18s level and have limited coaching experience. Set the task of fundraising the budget to deliver four tournaments during their stay, the boys met and exceeded expectations and received huge support from friends and family. Nick and Mike spent  their first two weeks in two Southern regions, Ruhango and Muhanga with RDOs, Mathieu and Laurien before heading to Gikenke in the North to assist RDO Felix. They finished their trip in Kigali where they coached the Rwanda Orphans Project kids and worked with Under 14s teams. All together they ran a regional sevens tournaments in each location and an under 14s tournament in Kigali. Their contribution greatly supports FoRR’s operation to develop rural school and youth rugby by working closely with our Rugby Development Officers and exposing youngsters to the game.  They returned home full of feedback and described their trip as an incredibly fulfilling and rewarding experience.
