Ten members of the Maasai Cricket Warriors Team have been selected and offered the opportunity to attend the “Legends Cricket Nursery” Academy run by 5 former Kenyan International Cricketers based in Mombasa, 800km (500mi) away from Northern Maasailand.
This unique opportunity will enhance the development of these individuals & afford them the chance to improve their skills and pursue greater heights in their sport. This will also be an opportunity for them to broaden their horizons, to have the experience of traveling beyond their boundaries and to see the world in a different light.
These Cricket Warriors are role models in their communities where they are actively campaigning against retrogressive & harmful cultural practices such as FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), early childhood marriages and fighting for the rights of women in order to eradicate discrimination against women in Maasailand. They are also promoting healthier lifestyles and spreading awareness about HIV/Aids.
