On Sunday 7 February 2016, the Bradman Oval, Bowral played host to the Maasai Cricket Warriors. The team were on a charity tour to raise awareness of social issues in Kenya.
The Maasai Cricket Warriors received $30,000 for the construction of the Ilpolei Sports and Community Centre in Laikipia, Kenya from the Direct Aid Program (DAP) in 2014. The recently completed centre has created a focal point for meetings, community events and sport activities in the community and is helping the Warriers address social challenges of the Maasai in Ilpolei.
The DAP is a small grants program funded from Australia’s aid budget. It has the flexibility to work with local communities in developing countries on projects that reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development consistent with Australia’s national interest.
