PROJECT TROPIC NATION
Project Tropic Nation (PTN), is a collection of socially motivated projects that seek to benefit others through the use of culture; specifically sport.
Why sport? We believe sport has the power to break down barriers, sport has the power to both inspire and educate; regardless of age, race, sexuality or demographic sport gives people an equal playing field in which to thrive and express yourself.
“Sport has the power to change the world,” Mandela said. “It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.” - Nelson Mandela
Project Tropic Nation took shape in 2019, with partner club Hillingdon Abbots in West London. Where we ran coaching projects that looked to build upon social skills in a rugby environment.
Supported by Eiger Performance, we have plans to set up coaching projects across the UK and in the long term develop a sustainable education project in which young players from disenfranchised communities are able to earn coaching qualifications.
