Themes

All of Cricket Without Boundaries’ work is underpinned by a central value of inclusion: “No Boundaries, Ever”. This is reflected throughout our work across four key themes.

HIV / AIDS

Adolescents are the only group in which the rates of HIV infection in sub-Saharan Africa continue to rise. While the topic is covered in schools, knowledge gaps, myths, stigmatisation and gender inequality remain major barriers to tackling this challenge head on. We work with cricket associations in Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Cameroon to bring boys, girls, teachers and coaches from all backgrounds and of all statuses together, to play cricket and use games to prompt discussion about these key issues.

Gender Equality

Gender equal opportunities to participate in sport are crucial, and can support gender equal participation in society more widely. Our mixed-gender work develops communication, cooperation and respect between boys and girls to help achieve this aim. We know that girls in particular face barriers to full participation, and our coaches in the UK and Jordan deliver girls-only activities, where female leaders ensure that girls have access to sport, and deliver our “Let’s Be Women” curriculum to build their confidence and develop life skills.

Ending FGM

FGM/C (Female genital mutilation/cutting) includes procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. It is a violation of the rights of women and girls. Our work to support the end of FGM/C is focused in the Masaai communities of Kenya, where we work together with the Maasai Cricket Warriors to empower young people by raising awareness of the practice, breaking the silence and taboo of talking about FGM/C, and empowering boys and girls’ to know their rights.

#WithRefugees

There are currently approximately 68.5 million people across the world who have been forcibly displaced from their country of origin, of which 25.4 million are recognised as refugees. Over half of these are under 18. We work with organisations and refugee communities in the UK and Jordan, who use cricket or sport to support asylum seeking or refugee children and young people to access advice and services, as well a providing a safe space to meet and play with friends.
