Rugby in São Paulo Favela

Rugby Para Todos (RPT) began 10 years ago in favela Paraisopolis, São Paulo.  Now a staff of 20 serve the personal, nutritional, athletic and developmental needs of approximately 250 youth, boys and girls, ages 7-18.  Eight players developed by RPT have represented Brasil National Teams.  The impact of RPT to the youth participants and entire Paraisopolis Community is magical and astonishing.   

Now a new English Course and Exchange Program is forming that will provide education and opportunity for RPT participants and the Paraisopolis Community.  Success of the program will rely on the willingness of people to be host families, contribute tablets and learning materials as educational tool, contribute skills and resources, etc.  If you, or anyone you know, is interested in being part of a team that will make a difference internationally and locally do not hesitate to contact Steve at restainos@gmail.com
