What is Khelo Rugby all about?

Our main social development project with rugby at its heart, where our passion for the game meets our passion to improve the lives of children.

We were delighted in 2017 to be announced as a "Spirit of Rugby" partner of World Rugby, one of only five across the world and the only programme from Asia.

Khelo Rugby begins by taking a rugby ball into underserved communities, as we gain the trust of the children and our relationship with them develops we can begin to work on other areas of activity. We have our own curriculum which explores a different social issue each month, we work on the development of our coaches, carry out community initiatives - at all times being led by the children we are playing with. 

Khelo now goes into 35 locations in Kolkata, 7 villages in and around Saraswatipur and 9 locations in Bengaluru - you can learn more about them through the links below as well as our curriculum, training for young coaches and our Winter Camp - the largest event which we run every year involving 1000s of children.
