After returning to the UK a few days ago after travelling round Kampala and Entebbe, I want to give my reflections on this Project

We set off with a team of 8 guys to Entebe, to begin our project, teaching Cricket and giving our Aids/Hiv message to those we met. It was hot. At 2.00 pm every day, it was very hot and even the locals were moving a little slower in the afternoon. The team however, never buckled under the Sun's heat and kept everything going with the help of water and the occasional area of shade.

As tutor, the young team encountered the large numbers promised on our first day. Our carousel of 4 groups, exceeded 50 children in each group. The sight of another School or two arriving late, with another 50 children, further stretched our resources. But the team never wilted,
realising that coaching individuals was impossible and it was really about activity and fun. They (the team) became 'machine like', in setting up, running sessions, and delivering the A, B, Cs . Some had no/little coaching background but most importantly they all had an interest in Cricket and love of the game. I was proud of the team's coaching efforts and the entusiasm in which they went about the sessions. At the conclusion of each session the younger guys devised their own little drama (play) which linked the Hiv/Aids message with Cricket and made the Hiv message fun, despite its serious consequences.

I stayed on for a few days after my colleagues had departed back to the UK, travelling around this beautiful country and reflecting on a project well run and full of fun, with memories which will last for ever.

Thanks to CWB and 'the team' for making this Project so special.
