As a child, Bryan was inspired by the Springbok team of 1995 which united a nation through their inspirational journey to becoming Rugby World Cup Champions. In 2007, as part of a Rugby World Cup winning team, he saw first-hand how sport had the ability to inspire, give hope and unite people from different walks of life. Bryan plans to use his Foundation as a vehicle to channel the values and experiences he has learnt through playing professional sport to inspire the next generation of young South Africans.
'I understood the importance of the Springboks... The team that united a nation through sport. They are a symbol of change. I experienced first-hand how big an impact they had when I was inspired to take up of the wonderful game of rugby.' - Bryan Habana
