Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) is a UK charity 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.

They have been to Uganda a couple of times to keep spreading the message of healthy living among the youth as well as make sure their programs continue to make an impact in the areas they visit.

They have a resident ambassador Emmanuel Isaanez who makes sure he follows up programs as well as make pre-trip preparations.

The resident CWB ambassador Emmanuel Isaanez was excited about the trip;

We are looking at getting the cricket base broad in our country and get those inopportuned regions a chance to have knowledge about cricket effectively.

Our volunteers really appreciate the job done by our association but want to also add up something for a positive upgrade in the game.

Kasese, Mbarara and Kabale will take this opportunity. The Volunteers have been very excited to come to these areas.

A group of 8 volunteers will be resident in the western districts of Kabarole (Fort Portal), Kasese, Masindi, Mbarara and Kabale for 12 days as they interact with local leaders, teachers, school heads and school children on HIV/AIDS education.

The group is split into 2 teams and these are; Team South which includes Jo Dean, Jhon Cosgrove, Tom Acton, Jordan Mitchell, Tanya Boardman, William Andrews and Lee Booth (Team Leader) and Team West which has Chris Hind, Ed Lamb, Alison Mc Creedy, Albert Burgess, Mark Campbell, Julia Farman, Sara Begg and Alpha Adowa.
