"The social and legacy impact of Rainbow participating in the Touraid festival is immeasurable and intensely profound. Consider the fact that was it not for rugby and the effort of Rainbow the alternative facing these young children are challenging. The experience of seeing another country and meeting and making new friends opens a world of new possibilities for the Rainbow players.
Crime and poverty has the potential to stifle self esteem and childhood. The touraid festival allows the kids form Rainbow to enjoy being a child again away from the stresses and problems of very day life in their communities.
Importantly it also gives credibility and reality to the message expounded by Rudolph Jack and his organisation: A message that strives to lead young men and women on a constructive and progressive journey.
