A Life Through Cricket
Cricket Live Foundation is the fulfillment of a passion of a young Kiwi named Alex Reese, supported by a greater ‘purpose’ of Dilmah Founder Merrill J Fernando with the blessings of its Patron, Richard Hadlee. The joint initiative between the MJF Charitable Foundation and Cricket Live (CLF) New Zealand has enriched the lives of over 1000 boys & girls in Sri Lanka, providing a pathway for them through Cricket.
The ‘Life through Cricket’ is a unique initiative by the Cricket Live Foundation (CLF) which empowers individuals, teams and communities by using Cricket as a means for holistic development & social integration of young girls and boys from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The CLF emphasizes the nature of teamwork and teaches both boys and girls essential life skills, such as punctuality, time management, self-discipline and respect for family and friends.
