Leinster Rugby are putting out a call for coaches to join Playing for Life’s volunteer group in Tanzania this July and help get the game off the ground in this East African country…
This Irish charity, since its foundation in 2005 by RTE Presenter Tracy Piggott, has worked closely with several African countries using sport as a tool for development within their partner communities.
Playing for Life seeks to activate the Irish sporting community to give something back to the disadvantaged communities abroad by recruiting volunteers for their annual volunteer trips.
For the 2013 edition, they are set to re-visit Arusha, in Northern Tanzania, with a group of 30 volunteers for a 2 week period between the dates of 13th and 26th of July.
Along with running a week-long sports camp with over 2,000 children from the local primary schools, they wish to support the local rugby team in Esso by running a coaching clinic whilst in-country.
In that case, they have put out a request for any rugby coaches who would like to put their skills to the test in a challenging environment and see the difference to be made with the local youth.
If you are interested in joining this trip of a lifetime then please contact ‘Playing for Life’ via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone: 045-482479.
