How will donated funds be used?

Funds donated in the lead up to and during, Rugby World Cup 2019 will help children and young people from disadvantaged communities across Asia and assist with emergency relief efforts in disaster-affected areas in Japan.

The ChildFund Pass It Back program will be expanded to support more young people in Laos, Vietnam and the Philippines, and will be extended to other developing countries in the region. Many more young people will develop their leadership and life skills through this rugby-based development program.

Children and young people will also benefit from other (separately funded) ChildFund programs in areas such as education, healthcare and child protection.
