The Atlas Foundation was founded by Jason Leonard and other rugby champions to bring positive change to children around the world through the power of the game

Why rugby?

“After seeing the outstanding charity work done by rugby players and the rugby family here and overseas, we knew that we wanted to find a way to add our weight to their efforts, to improve the lives of disadvantaged children across the world.”



The difference we make

From Argentina to Zimbabwe children from the poorest shanty towns and slums are given food, education and training, alongside the joy of playing rugby. Through this the kids we work with are learning and growing. They learn more, they stay away from drugs and crime, they become young leaders. In time they find jobs and become fine adults giving back to the next generation of children.
