The Il-polei Maasai cricket warriors would like to bring positive change and development to our community through cricket development and other sporting activities.We work to empower youth to participate in tackling social problems to bring about the desired change in the community.
By developing cricket and sports amongst Maasai youth and children the aim is to empower the youth in Maasai communities of Kenya while enhancing their participation in community development, allowing them to become healthy, productive and well adjusted members of society.
Through cricket development amongst schools and youth within Maasai communities a platform is built to promote education and as a means of encouraging sustainable social change. This is achieved by focusing on developing personalities, improving life skills and reducing at-risk behaviour by broadening youths’ horizons, bridging social divides, increasing health-related awareness and providing participants with the tools to help them make the right choices when facing social challenges. Key issues that are being addressed include: HIV/AIDS awareness amongst youth, combating gender discrimination, reducing alcohol and substance abuse, raising awareness of environmental and conservation issues amongst youth and children and contributing to peace building efforts and local development.
