Why volunteer?

Volunteer projects are at the heart of the work CWB does. Our projects provide an amazing opportunity to make a genuine impact - for some children we visit, simply having the chance to play an organised game is a thrill, but equally you can make a fundamental difference to a community through spreading positive heath and social messages through your coaching.

Our two-week long trips to Africa are normally packed full to ensure the maximum impact in the country. Each project is made up of 8-10 volunteers to ensure that the group can handle the numbers of children. We always try to get a mix of coaches and non-coaches to ensure a good spread of skills.

The projects include working with local schools, delivery of HIV or other health awareness messages, coach education, umpires and scoring courses.

You'll come back with unforgettable memories, a sense of achievement, and most likely some new skills that many of our volunteers find extremely valuable on their return to the UK.

Who we are looking for

We are looking for general sports enthusiasts, qualified or unqualified, for projects in Spring and Autumn. You don’t have to have any knowledge of cricket but we do ask for a willingness to work hard and get involved!


We ask all our volunteers to raise a minimum of £750 to cover the costs of the project, including transport, accommodation and most importantly the cricket equipment that is left in country. This is the major revenue source for the charity and helps to ensure that we can have the biggest possible impact in the two weeks.

Not covered in your £750 are flights, insurance, vaccinations, malaria pills and food and drink.
