The Maasai people of East Africa are globally famous for their beautiful culture, attire, striking physical features and a strong urge to maintain their traditional way of life, unlike most other communities. However, in a strongly male dominated community like the Maasai, there are some serious social injustices faced by girls and women.
Formed in 2009, the Maasai Warriors Cricket team are now using their fame and love for the cricket game as an inspiration to educate their community and give young people a sense of belonging, support and hope. They bowl and bat in their traditional clothing - bloodred ‘shukas’ and bright, beaded necklaces. They visit schools to teach cricket basics to girls and boys thus supporting more young people to play cricket while helping them to keep active, celebrate their culture through arts & music, champion girls' education, women’s rights and conservation. They have also played internationally including in the UK, Australia and South Africa.
Spaces are limited so if you’d like to attend please RSVP your attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 August at the latest.
