Home 5 News 5 Kids at Masi are inspired at a recent rugby game!

The kids at Masi recently went to a professional rugby game, where they were able to see their heroes in action. Many of the kids dream of playing rugby professionally, so having the chance to see a professional game was a great opportunity for the kids, and inspired them to keep working hard to fulfil their potential!

With Atlas South Africa trustee, John Le Roux, and Atlas Coach Frank, the kids came away motivated. Many spoke of the importance of discipline, fitness, and respect in their next training session. This is just one way the children at Masi are able to have a better life, free from the gangs and crime in their community, thanks to the Atlas programme.

“Atlas is making a huge difference at Masiphumelele, not only at school and as a community, but it is becoming a great rugby hub” – Coach Frank
