Partnering with Tag Rugby in Zambia

This was yet another great year working with the Tag Rugby Trust group and the Mill Hill School from the United Kingdom. We were delighted to support the organisation with their rugby tournament for the second year running, and have them assist us with the ongoing renovations at Zambezi Sawmills Community School.

Tag rugby was introduced last year in Livingstone in four schools. It has since grown exponentially and now the initiative works in 18 schools in total. This year, Tag Rugby brought in 35 volunteer coaches who trained the120 pupils that participated in a rugby tournament last week, which saw Zambezi Sawmills Community School emerge victorious.

Along with teaching pupils how to play tag rugby, and empowering them through sport, the group also does some community work. Making Zamezi Sawmills’ win just that little bit more special, this year 21 students from Mill Hill School had an opportunity to renovate and paint the old Zambezi Sawmills Community school 1×3 classroom block. As part of our ongoing improvements to the school, they also worked hard at other refurbishments including filling the holes on the walls of the classrooms, sanding and painting.
