Ed to run London Marathon for Eva

Trustee Ed Williams is running the London Marathon in order to fund four new CWB coaching ambassadors – including one who is very close to his heart.

Eva Kawira an 18-year-old nursing student from Thika, Kenya. She is bright, bubbly and has the world at her feet.

But 10 years ago her grip on life was fragile and fading as she appeared to be in the final stages of her fight against AIDS.

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.

A decade after helping sink Australia to regain the urn, "Hoggy" – who took 248 Test wickets - is taking the plunge at four open water swimming events starting with the Great North Swim at Lake Windermere (June 12-14).

Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) is looking for a new Country Manager (CM) to continue its work in Kenya.

The volunteer role involves planning projects in partnership with the national cricket association.

The Kenya CM will also be responsible for supporting CWB’s Ambassadors, the local coaches paid by CWB to deliver coaching and HIV/AIDS awareness in between trips.

Today (February 6) is the International Day of Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutiliation (FGM) and CWB is marking the event by formally announcing our first ever project focussing on the issue.

On February 15 a team of our volunteers and partners 28 Too Many head to Kenya where they will work with the Maasai Cricket Warriors to raise awareness of the practice.

As many as three out of every four girls in Kenya are at risk of FGM and the team will be based in the rural area of Laikipia where it remains prevalent.

Cricket coaching and karaoke were the order of the day at the latest CWB training weekend.

Based at Finham Park School in Coventry around 30 new and returning volunteers from across the country took part in the two-day event to prepare them for their upcoming trips to Africa.

This spring CWB is running trips to Botswana (March 21-April 5), Cameroon (February 6-20), Rwanda (February 6-20) and Uganda (February 22-March 9).

Last year Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) coached 50,000 children and trained over 500 adults as coaches in Africa.

Now we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers help them continue developing cricket and raising HIV/AIDS awareness on projects in Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016.

CWB is returning to Cameroon, Botswana, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and we want to hear from people from all backgrounds, whether you are a qualified cricket coach or not.

CWB Autumn Round-Up

Autumn 2014 saw Cricket Without Boundaries deliver a record six projects across five countries, coaching more than 30,000 children and training around 200 coaches.

With HIV testing tents at festivals in Uganda, establishing links with a research project in Cameroon and our Ambassadors helping us reach record numbers, it has been an incredible last few months.

December 1st, World AIDS day is an annual chance to reflect and showcase the work that goes into fighting this terrible disease and focus on how we can do more.

As this years theme is 'Focus, Partner, Achieve: An AIDS-free Generation,’ we want to reflect on the partnerships we have built in order to help achieve an AIDS-free generation.

Opening up - Autumn 2014

In a few days time CWB will be entering its 10th year. It seems only yesterday that myself, Andy and Chris were sitting around a kitchen table talking about how we were going to coach cricket from Cairo to Cape Town.

One of the questions we asked, apart from will the trip even work, was whether we should we set up a Charity to do that? Chris looked into that and the decision was made to apply for Charity status. So 3 volunteers set up a charity, oblivious to what it really involved. But I guess sometimes that’s what you need in life a great idea and a why not attitude. There are just so many reasons not to do things in life. So we took a risk, gave up our jobs and set off from the Nursery Gates at Lords in October 2015 with a variety of plastic cricket sets, our passports and a copy of the Rough Guide to Africa.
