Our Ambassadors

Cricket Without Boundaries' Ambassadors are critical to ensuring our work in country is both effective and sustainable. We currently have 7 Ambassadors working in 4 of our countries. CWB Ambassadors are usually drawn from coaches in country, which allows them to use local knowledge and insight to maximize impact.

Our Ambassadors are employed by the country's Cricket Association, with CWB supplying funding for the post. This means that our Ambassadors are well integrated into local coaching and cricket networks, and allows them to focus on cricket and health message delivery.
