The three rugby nations (Benin, Ghana and Togo) assembled in Ghana for the Rugby Africa Regional Challenge (RARC) Group West 1 tournament have joined Ghana’s national team, Ghana Eagles, as it embarks on a historic outreach programme dubbed “RARC Legacy Project”. The project was initiated by the Ghana National Rugby Squad, the Ghana Eagles , as their selfless contribution towards spreading the values of rugby to Ghanaian youth. The captain of the Ghana Eagles, Michael Ako (Ako) Wilson, said that few people in Ghana know about rugby, let alone its character building values. The first leg of the RARC Legacy Project was completed on Monday 1 May 2017 when the Benin Squirrels (Les Écureuils) conducted a “Get Into Rugby” session that explained and demonstrated the basics of Rugby to a group of school children in Madina. Even though the rains and school holidays did not help a lot, the enthusiastic kids and the Benin Squirrels thoroughly enjoyed the programme. The leader of the Benin delegation, M Roger Allagbe, said that the Ghana Eagles’ project is laudable. “Yesterday was beautiful. At first, there was a hesitation because of the rain, but when the kids started playing, they became more and more interested. “I think this kind of program is purposeful and must be perpetuated because it will make young people want to play rugby in the future,” Allagbe said. The second leg of the project involved the Ghana Eagles accompanied by Mr Charles Yapo, Rugby Afrique Development Officer – West and RARC Citing Commissioner. The Legacy Project Rugby clinic was conducted at the Senior Correctional Centre, a juvenile correction institute under the Ghana Prisons Service (GPS) on Tuesday 3 May 2017. The Centre was previously known as the “Borstal Institute for Juveniles”.
