Originally from Kumba in Cameroon, Serge Betsen is a rugby player. Selected 63-times with the French National Team, Serge participated in two Grand Slams in 2002 and 2004. He played with the Biarritz Olympique, winning three French titles, before joining the English club Wasps.
Initially, his vision was to create a project to popularise rugby among disadvantaged young people in Cameroon with the «Enfants de Biemassy». His project now bears the name of the Serge Betsen Academy and aims to use the teaching of this sport as a vector of social integration, access to education for hundreds of disadvantaged children in urban and rural areas of Cameroon and more recently in Mali.
“Because of my rugby background and experiences, I feel like a citizen of the world. I have learned to adjust wherever I go. Thanks to my passion for people, I am an individual at the service of the collective and I believe that each one of us has the power to make our community evolve to change the world”.
