Sport builds stronger kids
Every year, our sport partners around the world work with UNICEF to help raise the profile of child rights. Together, they help kids all around the world get involved with sport
Rugby inspire children
Each year, NZ Rugby helps to inspire children around the world to get off the side-lines and into sport, working with disadvantaged communities to make a real difference for kids.
Through NZ Rugby, the All Blacks, All Blacks Sevens, New Zealand Women’s Sevens, Black Ferns, Maori All Blacks and the New Zealand Under 20 teams help to contribute to UNICEF's work as they play rugby around the world.
Their biggest focus is on encouraging young children with aspirations to play sport to get involved in a local team, and to educate children on healthy living and exercise.
