Crossing the Gain Line

The country that rugby forgot.

Our objective is to enhance the lives of young Myanmar people  using rugby core values as defining characteristics of what we do.

We do this by

  • Providing rugby activities that foster life skills
  • Provide emergency food for families in the areas we coach
  • Train young Myanmar coaches ensuring sustainability
  • Provide vocational training opportunities for young people

The children and families we work with come from the poorest of backgrounds. Rugby has given hope for the future and we strive to  continue to grow and expand this benefit to the whole community.

Where is Myanmar?

Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) is bordered by Bangladesh and India to its northwest, China to its northeast, Laos and Thailand to its east and southeast. Myanmar is the poorest country in the region with the average daily wage of £5.

Why Rugby?

Where other sports highlight the individual, Rugby is a game built for a team of all shapes and sizes. As in life without teammates one has no chance to succeed. In communities with limited access to sport; rugby provides a unique platform to engage with young people and to support their learning. It is new to all and can be accessed by both girls and boys on an equal level. As former players and administrators, who lived and are living in Myanmar we are in a unique position to share the game that has given so much.
