Dallaglio Foundation Rugby for Change
The Dallaglio Foundation Rugby for Change is a UK based sustainable industry-leading project, targeting young people who lack the support in their lives to make the most of their talents. Young people at risk are given the opportunity to play rugby on their doorstep and become part of a team while tackling social issues from youth crime, to lack of engagement in education. By 2015, the aim of the program is to have a profound impact on the aspirations and self-esteem of around 2,000 young people who are at risk of making the wrong life choices.
As a team, Polarice are concerned about the number of young people in the UK who are making these wrong decisions. Having witnessed at first hand the work of Dallaglio Foundation Rugby for Change, we are passionate about their project. www.dallagliofoundationrugbyforchange.com
MAG (Mines Advisory Group) is a neutral and impartial humanitarian organisation, registered as a charitable company in the UK and co-laureate of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize. Currently working 15 countries globally, MAG saves and improves lives by reducing the devastating effects armed violence and remnants of conflict have on people around the world.
The Polarice team were drawn towards MAG due to the their own first-hand experience of the effects on communities of war, and in particular unexploded ordinance. www.maginternational.org
