Malawian Wordsworth Rashid contacted us in 2011 with the hope of connecting BPF to Malawian schools. Wordsworth is now a full-time coach manager for BPF Malawi, working with a growing team of staff to deliver year-round youth sports activities. We’ve constructed a community centre on a 7-acre site in rural Mtema, 25 km from Lilongwe.
We’ve supported rugby-for-development activities in Arusha and Dar es Salaam and, alongside partner organisations, we’ve helped to build confidence in vulnerable children living on the streets of Moshi. We’re now focusing our efforts on assisting the strategic and operational development of a locally registered NGO.
Meet the children and learn about the special people 'playing their part in the Pride', making BPF's projects a success. Could it be you?

"People in these rural village areas live in conditions which demand greater awareness and precautions to ensure they stay safe from the coronavirus. The supportive care work we're carrying out helps to shield these communities from this pandemic."

“BPF has really opened my understanding of how small the world has become. I have come to realise that in spite of our diverse backgrounds, the oval shaped ball has a way of breaking down all barriers.”
