Legends in Zambia June 2012

Rugby pundit Brent Pope travelled to Zambia with rugby greats Angus McKeen, Paddy Johns and Liam Toland, and twenty volunteers from the rugby loving public in 2012.

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 in 2011.

Ciaran Kelly went on the trip, and you can read his blog about it here.


Here are a few videos showing highlights of the trip!

Who are the Volunteers?

Leinster Legend Liam Toland reflects on his first day in Zambia:

Last year, Brent helped build a home for Tibakombole Ngulube and her family. This year, he went back to visit Tibakombole and find out how her life has changed for the better.

While in Zambia, Brent and the Legends held a rugby training session for local school children to pass on some pointers on how they can improve their game.
