What to Expect?
At the Rugby Project volunteers work with children in impoverished neighborhoods in the outskirts of Córdoba city. The discipline and group spirit of this team sport is helping the children to change some of their already ingrained habits and it teaches them to fight for what they want from life. Furthermore, the health of the kids improves through the rugby training and the education about nutrition and healthy eating. Volunteers can help by playing with and teaching the kids about rugby, improving the rugby field, fundraising for the centre, helping in the kitchen with healthy food preparation, teaching some basic English and translating promotional texts.
