THE STORY:

Cape Verde is a gem of political and economic stability in West Africa. However, the unemployment rate is above 20% and around half of the potential workforce are young adults.

The Cape Verde Rugby Union is a voluntarily run organisation that is free to the players. Our objective, in addition to creating athletes that can compete at the international level, is to develop community leaders and positive role models. Despite being a three year old bootstrapped initiative, we have had exponential growth. We now have 300+ beneficiaries in a men's, youth, and children's leagues.

Over the weekend one of our athletes, who is the sole bread winner for his family, severely broke his upper arm in a match. He has had two surgeries and will be out of commission from work for at least three months.

We are fundraising to help cover the medical bills and support his family. Any additional funds above our target will go towards supporting the operations of the Cape Verde Rugby Union.

Thanks!
