Life through Cricket completes initial phase
‘Life through Cricket’ – a collaborative programme between the MJF Charitable Foundation and Cricket Live New Zealand has completed the first three months with the opening of the refurbished outdoor practice nets at the De Zoysa stadium at Moratuwa on 7 March 2014. The three outdoor practice nets got a temporary face lift when Cricket live New Zealand team did a cleanup of the area when they arrived here in January this year. Thereafter the MJFCF initiated the refurbishments. The kids could now have their batting practices at the new nets.
After the opening of the nets the MJFCF team along with The Co-Ordinator and four coaches had a brief review with the children. Currently the 48 kids are grouped into two of 24 each and practices are conducted along with life skills lessons on five days of the week, after school, at the stadium. 10 out of the 48 kids are MJF Kids.
