ATLAS works through a global network of Rugby Champions to support projects that use rugby to improve the lives of some of the poorest people on earth.
Most of our work is with children and young people, and we work to improve their lives regardless of age, gender, sexuality, race or religion.
ATLAS funds overseas projects, including building schools and sports pitches, and providing education, food, medicine and play for children in deprived communities.
While rugby is our vehicle, our work is essentially humanitarian. In the poorest communities we focus on benefits to children that once given cannot be sold or stolen from them.
