Success stories

Cricket Without Boundaries works with partners around the world to grow the game of cricket, while using the sport as a platform for health education and social change. We are proud of the reach of our work, and the impact that it has in the communities we work with.

Since we began our work in 2005 we have reached thousands of children and adults, and with your help we hope to continue this for years to come.

We regularly ask players to tell us about what they learn from playing cricket and from being involved with Cricket Without Boundaries sessions, using our integrated learning methods. We use this information to continually check if we are achieving our goals:

  • Empowering communities: Are we helping players and coaches develop the life skills needed for community-led change?
  • Coaching children and training adults: Is participation equitable? Do boys and girls, men and women, refugees and host communities, people with and without disabilities, have equal chances?
  • Linking the game to health and social messages: Is there a knowledge change? Do players associate cricket with these messages?
