The team is made up of Maasai warriors from the Laikipia region of Kenya. The players are aiming to be role models in their communities where they are actively campaigning against Female Genital Mutilation, early childhood marriages and are fighting for the rights of women. Through playing and being involved in cricket activities in regional communities they are trying to promote healthier lifestyles and spreading awareness about HIV/AIDS amongst tribal youth. The team have been invited to play in the Last Man Stands Twenty20 Championship in Cape Town, South Africa.
