Although we seek to connect rugby communities all across Africa, we have focused our first efforts in Uganda, a beautiful country nestled in the Great Lakes region of the African continent. Working primarily in the northern Uganda region of Gulu, Gainline Africa Ambassadors are teaming up with local Ugandans to strengthen rugby communities after many years of brutal civil war. Over the years the Gulu district has seen much bloodshed and violent attacks from Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army(LRA). Employing terrible raid tactics the LRA has taken many of Gulu’s young boys and girls forcing them to become child soldiers and sex slaves. Since 2007 relative peace has returned to Gulu along with many former displaced children and families. Our Gulu project has partnered with 8 high schools and 1 club rugby side. Our grassroots approach seeks to maximize positive impact and create a sustainable legacy of Canadian-Ugandan rugby community cooperation.
