The first half of 2018 has proven an exciting one as several new projects come to fruition including exploring new opportunities in Jordan and the UK. As Cricket Without Boundaries’ continues to grow beyond our HIV-education origins we look to play to our strengths of inclusion and non-discrimination by addressing gender issues, including girls’ empowerment, and refugee integration.
This spring CWB sent volunteer teams to Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Jordan, as well as running a repeat of our very successful Leeds Trinity student placement project to Rwanda. The Jordan project was our first in the Middle East, and was made possible by the support and hard work of our partners there; UNHCR and Right to Play. Closer to home, we expanded the Let’s Be Women project into the North East in partnership with the Durham CCC Foundation and Girls’ Friendly Society, and have helped develop a relationship between Hampshire’s women and girls programme and Indatwa girls’ cricket team, Rwanda.
This work is not possible without our teams of enthusiastic and wonderful volunteers, thank you to every one of you who gave up your time in the last 6 months to help make this happen. If you’re inspired by what CWB have been up to, and want to get involved as a volunteer on one of our projects, the volunteer application window is now OPEN for 2019. Sign up now and help us empower more communities through cricket!
