Charity information

Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation

The Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation was formed in August 2011 to build and manage, on a not-for-profit basis, the first dedicated international cricket ground in Rwanda. The charity is run by a team of cricket enthusiasts from the UK and Rwanda.

RCSF vision is to create a green and pleasant environment, where Rwandans of all ages can develop their cricket and use these skills into their wider lives. The intention is to create a unique place and setting that complements the beauty of Rwanda.

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    In partnership with the Marylebone Cricket Club foundation (MCC) and the Rwandan Cricket Association an International standard cricket ground is planned for Rwanda. The facility will be non-profit and will operate a sport for all policy to ensure that Rwandans from all backgrounds can have access to cricket.

    The development is conceived as an opportunity to empower and engage local people in need of work, skills and income though the use of local materials and high labour intensive construction techniques. It will be a benchmark in responsible and sustainable development and will provide the people of Rwanda with a unique and valuable asset.

    The ground is to be constructed on a 4. 5 hectare plot on the outskirts of Kigal using predominantly local labour sourced through a Rwandan Government led social protection programme, the Vision Umurenge Project. Households from the two poorest categories of the population (Ubudehe 1 and 2), will be targeted to work on the construction of the project. Therefore, it will create local green jobs, demonstrate the benefits and use of sustainable design and avails new building technologies to Rwanda’s construction industry.

    The construction of Rwanda's first dedicated cricket ground will provide a permanent home for the sport, helping its development and increasing opportunity for thousands of disadvantaged young people.
