WATCH: Tackling Africa

Earlier this year we travelled to Malawi to spend time with Bhubesi Pride Foundation, a rugby coaching based charity that works with rural communities throughout beautiful Africa. This engaging 30-minute piece documents our incredible experience there.

Established in 2011 and with their first, highly ambitious expedition in 2012, Bhubesi Pride Foundation is now a smoothly run organisation that is multi-faceted in that it not only creates amazing opportunities for driven individuals but more significantly, they set up sustainable development on the ground in rural communities, bringing joy to thousands of children every year.

Volunteers from around the world can apply to take part in the journey, with the option of experiencing up to nine different African countries over a 7-month period.

This original documentary, featuring Rugbydump founder Grant Constable and Directed by Peteso Cannon, takes us deep into the heart of Malawi, a fascinating place that is affectionately known as The Warm Heart of Africa.

Our time in Lilongwe saw us on the ground for visits to 5 different local schools, including one with special needs students.

Along the way, we got to know the dynamic volunteers as well as witness how much the local children really do love the new experience of playing rugby, many of which got to do it for the first time.

A special thanks to charity founder Richard Bennett and the volunteers for being so accommodating, to RugbyPass for making this possible and most of all to the wonderful children of Malawi.
