Cricket for Equality - Nepal

Connecting Clubs International and Cricket Without Boundaries are delighted to announce a partnership with the MCC Foundation to deliver the Cricket for Equality project, in Nepal.

Building on the success of our previous work in Biratnagar, delivering grassroots training and coach education, we will scale our reach to support the development of cricket across Nepal.

Cricket For Equality

The initial phase of work has now started with local CWB / Connecting Clubs trained coaches delivering a 12 week programme across schools in Biratnagar. We will deliver our sport-for-good model that places social messaging at the heart of our delivery. Connecting Clubs International, Cricket Without Boundaries and Nepal Cricket for Equality have worked in Biratnagar since 2017 and reached over 4000 students.

With the support of MCCF we will deliver on four key outputs:

  1. The introduction of cricket into schools with a focus on grassroots development and gender sensitisation and the creation of a local coaching network
  2. Talent identification and the development of a pathway for the next generation of Nepali cricketers
  3. A substantial increase in girls and women accessing cricket and being given opportunities in the sport
  4. Delivery of clear social messaging throughout of our work

In partnership with the Nepal Cricket Foundation and local organisations we will use cricket as a catalyst for social good. Our experience tells us that cricket is a fantastic way to open up new spaces to address damaging social norms and we will endeavour to do this in our work. With a clear focus on gender equality in all that we do, our programme will empower the next generation of change makers in society and demonstrate the power of sport in making a positive difference.

Cricket For Equality

We look forward to sharing more details about our project in the coming days, weeks, and months so please keep an eye out for what promises to be an exciting year in the development of cricket in Nepal.
