Connecting Clubs International is delighted to announce a partnership with the MCC Foundation to deliver our project, Cricket for Equality, in Nepal. Building on the success of our work in Biratnagar, whereby we have delivered grassroots training and coach education, we will scale our reach to support the development of cricket across Nepal.
Together with the Nepal Cricket Foundation and Cricket Without Boundaries we will deliver our sport-for-good model that places social messaging at the heart of our delivery. Connecting Clubs International, Cricket Without Boundaries and Nepal Cricket for Equality have worked in Biratnagar since 2017 and reached over 4000 students.
With the support of MCCF we will deliver on four key outputs:
In partnership with the Nepal Cricket Foundation and local organisations we will use cricket as a catalyst for social good. Our experience tells us that cricket is a fantastic way to open up new spaces to address damaging social norms and we will endeavour to do this in our work. With a clear focus on gender equality in all that we do, our programme will empower the next generation of change makers in society and demonstrate the power of sport in making a positive difference.
We look forward to sharing more details about our project in the coming days, weeks, and months so please keep an eye out for what promises to be an exciting year in the development of cricket in Nepal.

Connecting Clubs is delighted to announce the appointment of two new trustees. Samantha Fletcher and Robert Chadwick join at an exciting time for us as we continue to expand our work in Nepal. A little bit about our new trustees below!
Samantha is a book editor by trade, she is a keen cricket fan and had long enjoyed watching Connecting Clubs' progress – in particular their work introducing girls to cricket and tackling gender inequality.
Rob is a self confessed cricket tragic, who plays it badly but talks about it fluently. He is a level two coach who loves seeing the positive impact the game can have on young people. Rob believes in the power of sport for social transformation and sees cricket a tool for delivering social messaging in Nepal.
As Sam and Rob join the board of trustees we will welcome Thomas Fletcher into the role as Chair of Trustees for the next year. The board are looking forward to us expanding our reach and having an even bigger impact in 2021.
