Next February Cricket Without Boundaries are sending a specialist team of volunteers to Kenya to deliver a bespoke project around Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

The CWB team are joining forces with FGM charity ‘28 Too Many’ and the ‘Maasai Cricket Warriors’, aiming to up-skill teachers by providing advice on how to support girls who are fearful of FGM or have been subjected to the practice, as well as providing support to girls who have been or are likely to subjected to the practice.

10 years ago, we were in full swing of setting up CWB around our day jobs. It was a unique experience and something out of the ordinary happened almost every day.

This week UNAIDS have released the first ever 'Gap Report', a document that takes stock of the global HIV situation.

The cricket development and AIDS awareness charity, Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB), is celebrating its membership to the UK network STOPAIDS, as part of its efforts to provide an effective global response to HIV and AIDS.

Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) is proud to announce a new partnership with Martin Berrill Sports (MBS), which sees the charity’s merchandise going on sale to the general public. 10 percent of every purchase will be donated to CWB and in addition to this, MBS is covering all of the costs of production, storage and order picking.

We have two events coming up in the next few months to help raise money for CWB.

Volunteers Week (1-7 June) is a national celebration of the work that millions of volunteers do every day, week and month. We took the chance to find out a bit more about why our fabulous volunteers do what they do to grow the charity.

Anybody who has ever attended a CWB training weekend will know about Eva. For those that haven’t, Eva was a young girl who made a long lasting impression on Ed Williams, one of our founding trustees.

What a great series of projects we have seen this spring at Cricket Without Boundaries. Having not long set foot into the charity myself, I was fortunate enough to head out to Rwanda and Kenya to be a part of our teams of volunteers and to see first-hand the hugely positive impact we can have on people through Cricket.

On April 6 Rwanda will mark the 20th anniversary of the genocide that saw one million Tutsi and moderate Hutu people slaughtered by Hutu soldiers and militia in just 100 days.

Time continues to play its part in healing the country's wounds but it is receiving a helping hand from an unlikely source – cricket.
