Opening up - Spring 2014

What a great series of projects we have seen this spring at Cricket Without Boundaries. Having not long set foot into the charity myself, I was fortunate enough to head out to Rwanda and Kenya to be a part of our teams of volunteers and to see first-hand the hugely positive impact we can have on people through Cricket.

April 6 – July 15, 1994

On April 6 Rwanda will mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide that saw one million Tutsi and moderate Hutu people slaughtered by Hutu soldiers and militia in just 100 days.

Time continues to play its part in healing the country's wounds but it is receiving a helping hand from an unlikely source – cricket.

Happy International Women's Day!

Saturday 8th March is International Women’s Day, seeking to promote equality for women across the world.

UNAIDS cites that gender equality is key in the battle to eradicate the global spread of HIV/AIDS and to break down stigmas. Over the past year Cricket Without Boundaries has worked with some amazing women, both in the countries we visit and with our volunteers. For CWB, getting girls and boys, women and men to play together in a respectful way on the cricket pitch is a key way in promoting equalty and fighting stigma.

Cricket comes to Kinihira

Rob Jones, a first time CWB volunteer, recounts the astonishing events when CWB went to Kinihira.

Bacon and eggs, Greenidge and Haynes, a horse and carriage. Cricket and tea are as inseparable as any combination you could think of, and that almost symbiotic relationship was never more apparent than it was today as we travelled north for the official launch of cricket in Kinihira.

Brandenburg Choral Festival

When it comes to the word “classical”, you’ll usually find the CWB Family using it relation to a cover drive or a bowling action. In 2014 however, we are spreading our wings to the world of classical music and want you to join us!
