CWB left a bag of kit with Mathias, and he launched himself into coaching in schools as a volunteer. Once Cricket Kenya saw how great a job he was doing, they employed him part-time as a community cricket coach, so he could keep spreading the word about cricket and HIV prevention.
Mathias’ biggest challenge, however, is transport. Without a means of getting himself to schools, Mathias has to spend a large amount of his income on rides around town. It’s stopping him from getting to 6 extra schools who are desperate for him to come and introduce cricket, and means he can’t save money to help support his family. He needs a motorbike, to help him get himself and his bag of kit around the schools.
So Cricket Without Boundaries are launching an appeal: Mathias needs a Motorbike, and you can help! A good used bike will cost approximately £700, any amount you can donate will help to get Mathias on the road and into more schools across Murang’a.
