Kherkhah believes the initiative will open doors to the ever growing multicultural community of NSW.
"My passion is to pass on my cricket knowledge, but more importantly it’s about mentoring girls and boys on how to be fit, healthy and respectful members of the community," said Kherkhah
The Blacktown T20 Blast Holiday Camp is the first of many Mosaic initiatives and gives girls and boys the opportunity to play fun games of cricket in an active and social setting.
This camp will be targeted towards boys and girls aged 6-12.
