Following the success of last year’s spring project, Cricket without boundaries, an organization based in the UK has posted seven officials to work on the 2016 Cricket project in the country.
The project is aimed at controlling HIV/AIDS by creating awareness through the game of cricket in addition to organizing mini festivals across the country.
"This program will boost our efforts of taking cricket to remote places in the country as well as creating awareness against HIV,”said Emmanuel Isaneez, the Cricket Without Boundaries ambassador.
Liam Stubbs one of the officials believes Uganda has a lot of talent with an added advantage of a Cricket friendly environment.
“Uganda has a lot of talent that needs to be developed from grassroot level. I love Uganda and that’s why am volunteering again to try and train people as well as spread messages against AIDS,” said Stubbs.
The seven officials include Beth evans, Richard Armes, Ross Opie, Sarajane Marchant, Tom Barnes, Liam Stubbs and Mark Campbell. The project runs until 26th March.
