Charity number



Cricket Builds Hope is a charity that uses cricket as a tool for positive social change in Rwanda. CBH harnesses the power of sport to promote reconciliation and tackle deep-seated social issues like gender inequality through specially tailored sessions run by CBH’s cricket coaching team.


Cricket Builds Hope is the successor organisation to the Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation (RCSF), which was founded in 2011 to build the country’s first proper cricket ground.


The not-for-profit ground – the Gahanga Cricket Stadium (GCS) – which was completed and opened in October 2017, consists of an ICC international standard wicket with pavilion and bar, as well as community facilities such as a medical centre which allows the Rwanda Biomedical Centre to deliver free HIV testing. 


CBH plays a role in the ongoing maintenance, operation and sustainability of the GCS, with our project director acting as chair of a joint UK/Rwandan NGO that oversees the running of the ground. The GCS continues to act as a base for CBH activities in Kigali. 


The long-term aim for Cricket Builds Hope is to leverage the power of cricket to bring about positive benefits for individuals and communities in Rwanda and, potentially later on, other developing countries too.

Cricket Builds Hope relies on the generosity of our donors. We need to raise £100,000 a year in order to use cricket as a tool for positive social change in Rwanda.
