Members of the Maasai Cricket Warriors sing and jump to their traditional rhythm after their T20 cricket match against the Ambassadors of Cricket from India in the Ol Pejeta conservancy in Laikipia national park. The Maasai Cricket Warriors are role models in their communities where they actively campaign against retrogressive and harmful cultural practices, such as female genital mutilation and early childhood marriages, while fighting to eradicate discrimination against women in Maasailand. Through cricket, they hope to promote healthier lifestyles and to also spread awareness about HIV/AIDS amongst youth. REUTERS
