TAKING SPORT FOR GRANTED.... These 5 Jerseys remind me how lucky we have it in places like Australia. I am currently working with Burundi rugby league in Africa. The country itself is in the top 5 poorest nations in the world. .
Jean Du Christ is the main man for Burundi RL and works very hard. One of his keys is to incorporate education in with the game. My hobby I run is called "Rugby League Link". It has helped out a little by donating 5 sets of jerseys to kick off a competition just over 12 months ago through my friends giving me their hard earned cash. .
I am lucky that I am surrounded by good and generous people otherwise I would not of been able to help out. I am currently working on another donation called the "100 Club" to help fund a National game between Burundi and Congo. This will raise the rugby league profile in the surrounding areas. .
I recently asked for help again and, once again I have recieved generous donations because of the good people around me. For this I am lucky.
The reason I like to help is because my kids can play any sport they choose. With a sign on form and a little cash my kids can join a sport. My son plays rugby league is now going to try cricket in the off season. My daughter plays rugby league and does dancing. .
I think all children deserve the opportunity to play sport and have fun with their mates even in the poorest nations. They just need a little help by more people. .
I thank Brendan Kelly(Zephyr), John Williamson(Contruct Health), Tanya Jukes, Mitch Donohoe, Sally Edwards, John Kendall, Dave Scott for the help with the Jerseys donation.
I will have another bunch of good people to thank soon after the "100 Club" is complete.
