Ravi Ruparel is a volunteer from UK. He spent 6 weeks training the local youth in Basics and few techniques of Cricket. The whole idea was to bring together the youth from local community and create a network of volunteers for the CoH's developement initiatives in future. The boys had a great time, as you can see.
