Warrior film promo launched

One of Cricket Without Boundaries major success stories, the Maasai Cricket Warriors are to be the subject of a fantastic documentary, directed by Barney Douglas (Swanny's diaries) and with the help of executive producer Jimmy Anderson.

The film illustrates the importance of cricket as a vehicle for social cause as the Maasai cricketers have embraced the CWB messages of ABC and made them their own. For example, the bat is their spear in the fight against HIV, using the spear to protect themselves like protecting your wicket with their bat.

Key points from the UNAIDS 2012 report

'AIDS is not over' – the key points from the UNAIDS 2012 report

The latest in the United Nations' annual reports on the state of AIDS across the globe reveals that the efforts to eradicate the disease are progressing, but simultaneously also shows that in many countries people living with HIV still face stigma, discrimination and injustice. There is still much to be done.

CWB Trustee Chris's thoughts on Cameroon

For most people, Cameroon is a country famous for forays on the international football stage and for being the subject of Gerald Durrell's books. More recent books describe a bilingual country with rich fauna and flora, a colonial past involving 3 countries (4 if you count Portugal several hundred years ago) but seemingly more developed than its East African cousins.

CWB Trustee – Ed’s Thoughts on Kenya

Touching down in a drizzly and damp Heathrow on Friday morning I could not help but reflect at the end of a mad 3 weeks. I had spent a week in Kigali with the Rwanda project to help with a BBC radio 5 documentary on CWB, I then came back for a 5 day trial in Sheffield (UK) before flying straight back to East Africa for the second week of the Kenya project. Looking back on it I can't believe I was effectively commuting from East Africa to Sheffield. The Kenya airways flight map has become firmly imprinted on both my conscious and semi-conscious as has that long corridor of an airport in Nairobi.

When 50 became 500

Adapatability is one of the key pillars of our work, and here's an example of why that's the case! Enjoy some controlled chaos in Kenya...

'What do you do when you arrive at a school ready to coach 50 kids and find 400 more sitting outside to watch? You coach them as well!

Having already coached more than 500 children across four different schools we arrived at Nakuru Elite – our last stop of the day – to find 50 kids ready for action and around 450 sitting outside to watch.

Within seconds the decision had been made to involve all 500.

Reflections on Rwanda

One of the founding trustees of CWB, Ed Williams (on the right of picture!), reflects on a very special time in Rwanda. Enjoy...

'I didn't know what to quite expect joining the Rwanda team halfway through their trip. I had flown out at the last minute in order, along with Lee Booth, to ensure that BBC crew that was going to cover the project had something truly special to film, as well as giving the co-founder and trustee back story to CWB.

Here come the girls!

As today (11th October) is the International Day of the Girl, the Rwanda team take a look at the impact of cricket and the ABC message on the girls they have coached, in Day 10 of their blog.

'Of the groups we have coached over the past 10 days around the country, we have always coached to a mixture of girls and boys. You only have to look at the profile page of the team members on this CWB trip to know that there are members of the team, whose involvement in cricket back in England seeks to promote women in the game, whether it be on a national or local level, playing or officiating. This is something which the team, as the charity name suggests, is seeking to promote in Rwanda.
