The ABC-T message is our method of integrating HIV awareness messages into our cricket coaching. The T is for testing – a key element in fighting the spread of HIV and living positively with HIV.

Testing is also a core element of cricket, for instance asking for a guard to test your set up or testing technique new skill at the end of a coaching session. Normalising testing in a cricket environment, where children can immediately see the benefits and often enjoy the testing process, helps to break down the stigma that prevents many young Africans from getting an HIV test.

I have been back from Kenya for over a week now and I have only just stopped having 'CWB dreams'.

It is as though my brain was still trying to process all the magical, mind-blowing and moving things we encountered.

From the 4000 smiling children we coached, to meeting Massai Warriors and stopping for elephants on the way to 'work', it was an unforgettable fortnight.

Cricket Without Boundaries volunteer Olly Ralph has been named the ECB Young Coach of the Year for the South West.

The 23-year-old from Bristol picked up the award for his work with Gloucestershire’s county and district teams and in local schools.

Olly – who works for bowling machine manufacturers BOLA  - visited Uganda with CWB in February and he says the experience has had a hugely positive impact on him both as a person and as a coach.

CWB tackle FGM with 28toomany

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.
