Cricket Without Boundaries volunteers know what a great experience the trips are. Pete from Bristol, said:
“I knew a CWB trip would be amazing, I didn’t realise it would be quite so amazing… No matter how much or little you know about Cricket it’s a great opportunity to do something unique and meet some fantastic people. Everybody I know would benefit from going on a project."
Lee Booth - Head of Delivery at Cricket Without Boundaries, said:
"We are looking for volunteers from all backgrounds to travel Africa for two weeks to coach cricket and deliver HIV - and related health- messages. All our volunteers find this a completely life-changing experience and one that lives with them long after they have returned home. Whether your passion is cricket, sports, health, or making a difference, a Cricket Without Boundaries project could be for you. We offer full training and currently work in 5 countries, each with a unique character."
Cricket Without Boundaries trips last two weeks and are normally packed full to ensure the maximum impact in the country. Each project is made up of a team of 6-8 volunteers, with a mix of coaches and non-coaches to ensure a good spread of skills.
We are currently finalising the dates for this Autumn and will be updating the information here as soon as possible.
Kenya – 29th Sept – 14th Oct
Rwanda – TBC
Uganda - TBC
The projects include working with local schools, delivery of HIV and FGM awareness messages, training local people as coaches, umpires and scorers and acting as a representative of Cricket Without Boundaries within local communities.
