Trustees of The Atlas Foundation were invited to visit an important project based at Virreyes RFC in the slums of Bueno Aires, Argentina.
The rugby organisation was founded in 2002, with a focus on major social integration and based on the importance of education for everyone. The community, in which the club is founded, is underprivileged who do not have the means to provide quality academic support to the children.
The club support the local children with education, rugby and encouragement which they would not otherwise be able to obtain. The kids acknowledge the benefits that the club has had on their lives and, as in the words of the club co-founder Marcos, Rugby is “a true sport that can catapult them to live a better and more fulfilling life”.
