We support the Denis Diderot high school in the organization of this annual event bringing together French institutions in Africa, French overseas territories and the Nairobi slums. Find below a short presentation written by the Denis Diderot high School.The Africa 7’s is a major event for French Schools in Africa. After Johannesburg (South Africa) in 2015 and Tananarive (Madagascar) in 2016, the event will be hosted by the Denis Diderot high school, at the Impala grounds from the 3rd to the 8th April 2017. This will be the first time that the school will host such a major event.
The Africa 7’s has a goal of promoting and strengthening relationships:
1- Between the French African institutions of the network by allowing their pupils to live and share a unique experience in Kenya.
2- Between the Lycée Denis Diderot and Kenya by portraying the institution as one which encourages dynamic encounters and international exchanges in French.
3- Between young people by strengthening the bond of friendship and solidarity among them, thus promoting the universal values of sport, especially rugby, by learning to live together and participating in a process of cultural and social diversity around the same passion.
The participation of the Sadili Ovale rugby school from Kibera slum and other international schools from Nairobi will enable pupils to exceed cultural and social differences existing in Kenya.
We wish all participating teams good luck!
