Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation visits Atlas South Africa!

Home 5 News 5 Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation visits Atlas South Africa!

Atlas South Africa were honoured to host the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation and the U16s Rugby Monaco team to join us in a 3-day rugby programme. Playing some exceptional rugby against local schools, including Ocean View and Masiphumelele High Schools, there was some fierce competition, with all the teams giving their absolute best. Well done to the Monaco team who showed great skill and came out on top in the final!

The players at Rugby Monaco were also able to visit our Atlas Digibus, which is proving to be a game changer in education for the children in Langa. The team joined the children on the bus and saw first-hand how the Atlas Digibus is providing children with essential skills they need to break the cycle of poverty many families face. Thank you to the Princess Charlene Foundation and Rugby Monaco for taking the time to visit our Atlas Digibus!

The kids at Ocean View & Masi, and on the Atlas Digibus, loved meeting the Rugby Monaco team and the Princess Charlene Foundation – we hope to see you all again soon!
