WHAT WE DO?
Young cricketers from abroad visit the UK for between 3 -10 weeks and are placed at leading schools to enhance their education and further develop their cricketing skills.
The purpose of these trips are to expose the young cricketers to different systems of education and sport whilst giving them a cultural experience as well.
The cricketers at the UK schools also benefit from playing alongside some of the best cricketers from abroad.
It is our aim to harness the potential of the cricketers and to develop them in a holistic manner from a young age.
WHAT WE DO IN EDUCATION?
The boys who attend Cheadle Hulme School, Denstone College, Kings College Taunton and Durham School attend academic lessons in the morning. Subjects taught include English, Maths, Geography and IT.
In the afternoon, the cricketers partake in either matches, net practise/one on one training or fitness conditioning.
WHAT WE DO IN SPORTS?
Each year between 3-4 cricketers visit the UK. They are very talented cricketers from India, having played at least state level age group cricket. Some of the boys are also very underprivileged. This year one of the youngsters attending Durham College is an orphan who lives in slum-like conditions in Mumbai..
We aim to use cricket as a medium to help transform lives.
Via our unique sporting initiatives, young sports stars will be exposed to different sporting, educational and cultural systems abroad which will help them achieve their potential.
Many of these youngsters are from very humble backgrounds. .
We hope a number of them will go onto become first class cricketers and Test players for their respective countries.
