Today is an important day. Today is the day we will make good on our promise to revive cricket in the West Indies. The idea came about at the One Young World Summit in Bangkok when Laureus Sport Ambassador and former Australian cricket captain Steve Waugh joined Kate Robertson on stage to discuss the role of sport in development. Together, they vowed to do what they could to make noise about the legendary cricketers that were once the West Indies team.
And today this all takes shape as April 6 is the International Day for Sport for Development and Peace. One Young World Ambassadors from the Caribbean will lead 8 different cricket projects. We are so proud of our Ambassadors and all of their hard work in putting this together.
Here are some of the highlights to date:
