ESCC partner with Batting for Change07-Jan-2020 The Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club is delighted to be supporting Batting for Change for the 2019/20 season.
Batting for Change was founded by former NSW batsman Ryan Carters in 2013. Every summer, they raise funds in partnership with The LBW Trust, to level the global playing field in education. Batting for Change is based upon by the belief that Australians can come together to create transformative educational opportunities for disadvantaged young men and women in cricket-playing nations.
Since 2013, Batting for Change have been able to raise more than $1M to support tertiary and vocational education in countries such as India, Sri Lanka and Nepal, where they love their cricket but don’t always have equal opportunities in life.
On average, it can cost Batting for Change as little as $250 per student per year to support these opportunities in education, enabling deserving students from disadvantaged backgrounds the change to pursue higher education, transforming their lives and their communities.
Following confirmation of Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club’s support of Batting for Change, the charity’s founder, Ryan Carters, expressed his delight to be aligned with the Dolphins once again.
