HELLO Annekatrin Els // Rugby Tackling Life

The fat one that can run. That is me. Though the story is not about me, but it is how it started for me. 10 years ago I moved to Uganda and met an incredible group of rugby playing women from Uganda and the US. Together we came up with the idea of Rugby Tackling Life; an organization that chose Rugby as its tool to empower girls and young women in Uganda.

A popular question in job interviews is: „Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?“ I will still be playing Rugby, I will still drink COOFFEEE every morning and gin tonic every other night, and I will spend at least 6 months in Uganda to ensure we keep moving and growing. In 10 years time, we will have 10,000 girls playing Rugby with us, we own our very own farm and a vocational training institute, our life skills education program will be booked out, we will own a coffee farm and will have hundreds of adventurers, rugby player and marathon runners come and visit and work with us in Uganda! How do we get there? Together with you. Because if you can travel, you help us grow…
