Daniel Ole Mamai (L) of the Maasai Cricket Warriors and teammate Christopher Ole Ngais run between the wickets against the Jaffery's team during their friendly match in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa.

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.
