26th February - 13th March
A team of volunteers have recently returned from Uganda following a successful 17 day trip to 3 centres in the East. The team, made up of members of the Belvoir Cricket Trust led by Paul Rowe and Richard Davies.
The team once again visited Masaka, Kasese and Fort Portal, helping to continue the development started by previous Cricket Without Boundaries projects. During the course of the 2 week project the team trained over 500 children and 60 coaches and made a lasting impression on everyone they came into contact with, both in terms of cricket development but also more importantly by stressing the positive HIV/AIDS awareness messages that are central to everything that CWB does.
“I would like to register our sincere appreciation to you and the tour members for having come to Uganda to run the Spring project. Based on the preliminary reports from the areas you worked with, the feedback has been very positive".Justine Ligyalingi, CEO of the Uganda Cricket Association
“It was great to see the project at work on the ground and it is no surprise that the feedback has been so positive. The team showed boundless enthusiasm throughout the trip and we look forward to heading back to Uganda in September".Simon Hards, Country Manager for Uganda
