#InspireDreams by volunteering with CWB

Last year, over 65,000 children – half of whom were girls – across Africa, the Middle East and Europe were coached by our CWB volunteers. Volunteers from across the UK, from 18 to 63 all motivated to inspire, to coach, to share and experience the power of sport to make a difference to young people and inspire their dreams.

We believe that by working with national cricket associations to grow the game and by supporting local communities, cricket can be used for change. Through sports coaching we can increase HIV/AIDs education and awareness, promote gender equality, challenge stigma and taboos, as well as inspiring young people to strengthen their communities through teamwork and cooperation.

CWB is currently recruiting volunteers for our projects in the Autumn of 2020. We will be returning to Rwanda and Uganda and for the first time will be undertaking a full project in Malawi where we want to build on some initial work we have been doing on a smaller scale for the last two years.

Our projects last for up to two weeks and each trip is made up of a team of 8-10 volunteers, with a mix of coaches and non-coaches to ensure a good spread of skills. We provide full training and support and our projects run in the Spring and Autumn so there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved.

Project dates for Autumn 2020 are as follow:

  • Rwanda – 19th Sep – 3rd Oct
  • Uganda – 26th Sep – 10th Oct
  • Malawi – 3rd – 17th Oct

What makes a great CWB Volunteer? A positive attitude, passion for working with others and willingness to make a difference are essential. A background in cricket is not necessary for participation and we welcome volunteers with a wide range of experiences, including cricket and sports coaches and enthusiasts, health and education specialists, and individuals with community development experience.

Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) is a charity which delivers cricket development alongside health and social messages sub-Saharan Africa, Jordan, and the UK. We work on the principle that sport - particularly cricket - is inclusive and accessible for all.
