Acting together with Peace and Sport

In his native Cameroon, Serge Betsen founded the “Serge Betsen Academy”, designed to introduce disadvantaged youth to the practice of rugby. The association uses rugby training as a vehicle for social integration, personal development and access to education for youngsters from slum areas in Yaounde.


Although modest, the NGO has brought structure and stability into the lives of a hundred children using Serge Betsen’s popularity.

The project won the Peace and Sport Award for the Best NGO of the Year in 2008.
