Volunteer now for Autumn 2016

Since the three trustees set off on an African cricket adventure in 2005, CWB has coached over 180,000 children, promoting key health messaging and inclusivity in seven African Countries. The job is not done though, and we need your help to do more!

As CWB enters its 11th year as a charity, we have a number of exciting volunteering roles that will help grow the charity to empower more local coaches, deliver more social development messages and give more children the joy of playing cricket.

Last February CWB partnered with the MCW and 28 Too Many to deliver its first FGM project in Kenya. Female Genital mutilation also known as cutting is an abusive practice which affects an estimated 200 million women and girls worldwide.

10 year anniversary

It was 10 years ago when the three of us founding trustees set off to coach cricket from Cairo to Cape Town as CWB’s first project. We had no idea what to expect from those 7 months, let alone what would become of the embryonic charity that we had just set up. Fast forward 10 years later and its 180,000 kids coached across Africa and almost 4,000 new coaches to train them. I know I speak for Andy and Chris when I say it is one of the things we are most proud of.
