Curb the negative effects of gang activities amongst the youth of Compton, the USA and throughout the world and...
Address homelessness and poverty through the principles and ethics of Cricket
Encourage and promote civility, good and productive citizenship
Bring Cricket to America, through its inner cities, harnessing the raw talent waiting to be future US cricketers.

Cricket needs more nations involved, countries just end up playing each other over and over.

Good story!

Cricket was the # 2 team sport in the USA up to the year 1900. It would be great to see it become popular here again.
