Welcome

Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) is a UK registered charity (number 1154576) that uses cricket as a vehicle for delivering health and social messages in sub-Saharan Africa. It is run almost entirely by the dedication and enthusiasm of its volunteers.

Since its formation in 2005 CWB has become one of the world's leading Cricket Development charities. It is dedicated to helping, educating and developing local communities around the world through the spread and growth of cricket.

CWB has three main goals:

  • To spread cricket through coaching children and teaching adults how to coach; and
  • To link the sport to health and social messages and incorporate these messages into coaching sessions.
  • To bring together and empower local communities through cricket.

These goals are achieved through project delivery by our volunteers and year-round delivery in-country by our ambassadors.

Testimonials

  • "My favourite part of a CWB project is the testing days - after three or four days in a town we finish with a big cricket festival, including an HIV testing station. All your hard work instilling cricket skills and HIV health messages comes together and you can see the tangible difference you have made. Volunteer with CWB and experience it for yourself, you'll never forget it!"
