Cricket Without Boundaries is delighted to be featured in the recent DFID publication Girl Summit – One Year On. Girl Summit 2014, co-hosted by the UK government and UNICEF in London in July 2014, built partnerships and galvanised the global movements to end Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) and Child, Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM).

The charity – which uses cricket to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and bring smiles to the faces of 1000s of children each year - is looking for enthusiastic people to go on projects to five African countries in 2016.

Trips are typically two weeks long and include coaching in schools, training local teachers and running cricket festivals.

No cricketing experience is required as full training is provided before you go.

Help Hoggy Make a Splash for CWB

England 2005 Ashes hero Matthew Hoggard is swapping his whites for a wetsuit to raise money for Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) as part of its 10th Anniversary, and we want you to get involved to help celebrate this landmark year for the Charity.

CWB has appointed its first ever Ambassadors in Uganda and Cameroon.

Isaneez Emmanuel (Uganda) and Winston Mukum (Cameroon) - who are both full internationals - will become the charity’s first paid local coaches in their respective countries.

Gary Shankland has become Cricket Without Boundaries’ new Kenya county manager.

A veteran of three projects, he takes over from Tracey Davis who held the role from October 2011.

Gary, who was already the charity’s HIV lead in Kenya, will be responsible for planning future projects, supporting CWB’s Ambassadors and working with our partners to develop our work there.

Cricket Without Boundaries has embarked on a pioneering new project to use cricket to help end FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) in Kenya.

Working alongside local team the Maasai Cricket Warriors (MCW), volunteers from CWB and FGM charity 28 Too Many used the game to promote gender equality in the rural region of Laikipia.

Combining anti-FGM messages with cricket, the group coached 1750 schoolchildren and trained 24 teachers, health workers and doctors as coaches during a week-long visit.
