Brent Pope Rugby Legends
In late 2010, Brent became involved in the work of Habitat for Humanity Ireland, a development organisation that believes in a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
Eager to do more than just lend his name, Brent sent up the Brent Pope Rugby Legends Foundation to encourage former rugby players and enthusiastic fans to get actively involved with Habitat’s projects in Ireland and around the world.
Over the last two years Brent has helped out on Habitat renovation projects in Dublin and twice travelled to Zambia to work alongside local communities on Habitat projects there.

In June 2012, rugby pundit Brent Pope travelled to Zambia with rugby greats Angus McKeen, Paddy Johns and Liam Toland, along with twenty volunteers from the rugby loving public.
Between 6th-14th June, they worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes alongside local families in Ndola, northern Zambia. They also passed on their rugby skills during a training session with local teams. This was Brent’s second trip to Zambia after travelling on a similar trip last year.

Brent Pope and Malcolm O’Kelly visited Zambia in June 2011 to build homes with Habitat for Humanity Ireland.
As part of their five day volunteering trip in Zambia, rugby legends Brent Pope and Malcolm O’Kelly swapped their rugby boots for hard hats. From 6am to 5pm each day, alongside local people, the crew built a three room house which would serve as a safe and decent for a family of seven.
