The National Women’s Cricket Team, Pacific MMI Lewas, will be carrying out awareness and advocacy activities.
This is mainly to introduce the game to more girls and women and build women’s cricket in the country.
The launch was held today in partnership with the Australian Government.
Present at the launch was Dotsy, the Tuberculosis mascot, Tura the Kokomo, including the Australian High Commissioner, Deborah Stokes and other guests.
The new women’s cricket program ‘Born to play’ supported by the Australian Government will help young girls enhance their skill in cricket during term breaks. There to spearhead the program were our very own women’s champion cricket team, Pacific MMI Lewas.
Dotsy, eagerly took to the bat and so did Tura.
Cricket is big in Australia and Stokes showed some of that talent.
‘Born to play’ is part of the broader ‘Kriket Bilong Olgeta’ program.
The Kriket Bilong Olgeta program is part of the Australian Government’s Pacific Sports Partnership which is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
