The Maasai Cricket Warriors are acting as role models and ambassadors in their communities where they are actively campaigning against retrogressive and harmful cultural practices such as FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and early childhood marriages, which are contributing to the spread and increase in the cases of HIV/AIDS.

Who we are?

Laikipia Maasai in Kenya have exchanged their spears for cricket bats. They use cricket as a vehicle to transmit messages  against social injustices,  FGM and early forced marriages and wildlife conservation

To promote the desired positive change and development among our people through sports and community participation.
