Tiarisha’s Story

Tiarisha’s Story

Tiarisha Maritz was born in one of the poorest communities in Gauteng, Reiger Park, where many children grow up in poverty and without an education, and girls face severe gender inequality and violence.

Our Mission

We use rugby to engage and inspire children, instilling the core values of rugby in a safe, fun environment. Working alongside the community, we identify the specific barriers children face and partner with a range of local organisations to deliver additional tailored support across education, health, and inclusion.

Our Vision

Rugby is a unique sport, played and followed by a tight-knit global family. Values of integrity, teamwork, enjoyment and commitment help create not just better players, but better people. Its bonds of friendship transverse the world, touching people regardless of race, religion, or gender.

Our Impact

Atlas is committed to offering long-term, practical support for children growing-up in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. We work across 19 countries helping 95% of young people graduate their year at school, with 88% of partners providing nutritious food and clean water.

Get Involved

As well as donating money to The Atlas Foundation, there are other ways to help! We have various events across the year that raise valuable funds for our projects which are a great way to get involved and support Atlas. Or you can set up your own fundraising page!
