Story

ChildFund Australia is extremely grateful to the East Rows West team for taking on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge while raising funds for our award-winning Sports for Development program, ChildFund Rugby. The program uses tag rugby to teach children and young people a range of valuable life skills, which equips them to overcome challenges, inspire positive social change and pass it back to their communities.

For Martin, Matthew and Robert, "rugby is a sport that has given us all a huge amount of opportunity and taught us a lot in life. We think its a great way to educate young people especially about the importance of values and hard work. Its also what brought us together and has given us all friends for life. The opportunity to help improve the lives of children from poor backgrounds in Asia is something we are very passionate about and look forward to visiting the communities to share our knowledge and experiences as well as raising money for this fantastic cause."

Your support will make such a difference. It will enable the ChildFund Pass It Back program to be expanded to support more young people in Laos, Vietnam, Timor Leste, Philippines, Cambodia, and other countries in the region.
