Administrator Position for the Federation – Thanks FoRR & King Penguins

In AugustĀ 2013 Keith Wallace contacted Friends of Rwandan Rugby to find out more about our organisation and see if there were ways that he could help FoRR and rugby generally in Rwanda. Throughout the past 11 months during countless phone calls and almost a hundred emails this partnership is a week away from starting to deliver the fruits of that labour. Keith will be travelling to Rwanda with approximately 200kgs of rugby equipment. He will be there as part of a tour organised by the King Penguins, a group of “mature” rugby players that compete in matches and promote the training of youngsters in the skills of rugby as well asĀ providing coaching to the communities they visit. In addition to this immediate injection of materials the infrastructure and finance has been developed to seek and employ an administrator for the Federation of Rwandan Rugby. This full time salaried position will enable the Federation of Rwandan Rugby to drive towards developing the game across Rwanda and its goal of securing full member status from the IRB. Applications for the position will be opened shortly and once in place the Administrator will orchestrate the various component of the sport in collaboration with the existing six FoRR rugby development officers under the overall control of the committee of the Federation of Rwandan Rugby. FoRR is delighted to have facilitated this sponsorship by the King Penguins to increase the capacity of the Federation of Rwandan Rugby and looks forward to improved delivery of competitions and opportunities for all Rwandan rugby players as a result.
