Last year a team of anti-FGM campaigners from the charity 28 Too Many and Cricket Coaches from Cricket Without Boundaries, headed out to Laikipia, Kenya to help the Maasai Cricket Warriors in their mission to end the practice of FGM within their community.
On May Day Bank Holiday Monday, Ickenham Ladies CC held their annual 6 aside ladies cricket tournament raising money for their two chosen charities Cricket Without Boundaries and CURA UK.
Despite only taking up running 18 months ago Jules Farman is about to take on a 60 mile run over the Pennines between Leeds and Manchester in 2.5 days to raise awareness about FGM.
In the last 10 years, the development charity Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) has trained over a quarter of a million children in 5 African countries. Alongside those children we have trained over 3500 adults as ICC cricket coaches. More importantly, through every one of those children and coaches, we have raised awareness of HIV/AIDS and FGM; and that awareness is now cascading through communities, reaching countless individuals.
Cricket Without Boundaries would not be in existence without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. We have many volunteers in different roles in the UK but we are always looking for more help. As part of work to target our resources as effectively as possible, we are expanding and strengthening the monitoring and evaluation team.
