Reporting “from the field”, this episode of the Good Sports Podcast features interviews recorded during a recent Cricket Without Boundaries project to Rwanda. Lee was in country with a volunteer team from Leeds Trinity University, after travelling to Huye and Giterama the team returned to Kigali and were lucky to deliver several sessions at the Gahanga Stadium.
A big thank you to Vero, Mary, Audifax, Parfait and Eric for taking time away from the cricket to chat about their cricketing journey and how cricket is helping to change lives in Rwanda.
