US$1,119.00Donated So Far
The Granada Rugby Club has been in operation for two years and I am extremely proud to be the coach of this bunch of young men. Nicaragua is not an affluent country so opportunities for these terrific athletes are very slim. Donations will be used to fund travel to ganes in other cities, (fuel, vehicle hire, driver hire) training and playing equipment, player registration fees, tournament fees, and lunches for the guys. Please remember that the average wage here is around $10 per day for those lucky enough to have a job. Any and all help is welcomed and appreciated more than you can imagine. Most of these lads do not have a passport and have never left the country. Rugby gives them an opportunity to expand their life experiences and open their eyes to the rest of the world. Rugby has given me so many opportunities in the 28 years I have been playing and I want to pass on those opportunities to others and grow the tremendous sport of rugby.

Absolutely blown away by the generosity of everyone who has donated to this point. Humbled is an understatement. Thank you all so much.
