There is A Northampton businessman returning to east Africa, to lead a team of stunt volunteers, to assist citizens deal with the effects of civil war – with cricket.
Head of Managed Services in Imperial Business Processing Unit, Clive Hawthorn,has been returning to help deliver support communities and health messages.
Previously, Clive, a keen cricketer and also an active volunteer for its Cricket Without Boundaries (CWB) charity, volunteered at jobs in Kenya, Cameroon and Uganda.
He’ll lead a team of nine volunteers from the united kingdom who will visit community classes, colleges and orphanages across Kigali, the capital of the country, in addition to more distant locations.
People living with volunteers helping to increase awareness and societal values in communities in sub-Saharan Africa are supported by CWB.
Clive explained: “Although emotionally and physically hard in absolutely every facet, Cricket Without Boundaries’ unique voluntary programmes are tremendously good for the communities we all visit and supply a true sense of fulfilment for volunteers such as myself.
“The programs really do bring home the fragility of human life and the intense vulnerability of young individuals in areas of severe social and economic deprivation.
“More importantly, I know from first hand experience just what a difference we’re making and we are indebted to everybody who contributes to this design that covers the cost of every volunteer’s involvement.”
The project will incorporate coaching sessions and visits to particular festivals in addition to colleges where kids will be encouraged to participate.
Clive has arranged for medical agencies to prepare a HIV testing channel at every festival to supply participants with the opportunity to be tested for the infection that was life threatening.
