ChildFund Sport for Development

Cricket for Good (with ChildFund) is an integrated cricket and life skills program that provides a safe, inclusive and structured learning environment designed to equip children and young people to overcome challenges, develop peer support networks, and drive change to promote gender equality and the elimination of violence in their communities.

Cricket for Good – Fiji

Cricket for Good – Fiji is delivered through a partnership between Cricket Fiji and ChildFund. It is adapted from, and informed by, evidence and learnings from the Cricket for Good pilot in Papua New Guinea, designed by ChildFund in collaboration with Cricket Australia and the International Cricket Council and implemented through Cricket PNG.

The program is supported by Team Up, the Australian Government’s sport for development program, comprising of more than 30 partnerships across Asia-Pacific that are working to support all people to realise their full potential through sport.
