Vote for Maasai Cricket Warriors: Playing against rivalry


The Maasai Cricket Warriors, from Laikipia have been nominated for the International Peace and Sports "Image of the Year" Award.

As a commitment to global PEACE and PEACE in KENYA please show your support by voting for the Maasai Cricket Warriors to win the Peace and Sport Image of the Year Award.


The Maasai Cricket Warriors (MCW) unite Maasai warriors from rival communities through cricket. MCW uses the values of sport to bridge social, political, economic and cultural divides in order to encourage dialogue, to promote tolerance and ultimately to foster peace between conflicting groups. MCW has been actively campaigning against women’s discrimination in Maasailand as well as retrogressive and harmful cultural practices, such as female genital mutilation and early childhood marriages. MCW also promotes healthier lifestyles and spreads awareness about HIV/AIDS amongst youth.

The picture was taken on March 17th, 2012 during a match against the Jaffery’s Youth Cricket team in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa. Batting in his traditional outfit is Nissan, a Maasai Warrior.
