The Kolisi family sure have been busy this year, especially after Siya helped to win the Rugby World Cup – and after Rachel might have had a rugby ball thrown at her head by a fan who later posted an apology video for the mistaken throw.

Here’s more about the foundation and what they aim to achieve, founded by the couple Siya and Rachel.

What is the Kolisi Foundation?

The Kolisi Foundation is a non-profit (NPO) organisation founded and managed by Rachel and Siya, who might be called one of South Africa’s nicest fitness power couples.

According to the about us page, the foundation has been in existence since March 2020.

The foundation exists to provide a charitable system for help to fellow South Africans, including support for community projects that enrich and empower.

Food security and combating gender-based violence are some of the initiatives supported by the foundation.
