Scouting in Kenya 2020 & 2021

 

Introduction:

Coming off of a successful Scouting in Kenya 2019 trip, Servant Forge is planning a Strategic Planning Leaders Group in February 2020 and the next Scout Crew in February 2021.

Servant Forge looks to create servant leaders within the communities they serve and it is a perfect partnership with BSA and the Kenya Scouting Association (KSA), who seek to develop youth leadership, foster community service, and develop a moral compass.

Program Objectives
• To contribute to the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social, spiritual, emotional and character potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
• To promote the development of the Global Scouting Movement
• Do service for the KSA and learn more about the Scouting Movement in Kenya
• To provide stimulating educational experiences for young people from the US and Kenya
• To create an environment to enhance cultural awareness and understanding of difference and the impact of the cultural and traditional practice on young people’s lives
• To equip adolescent boys and girls with life skills; develop critical thinking and self-confidence, to protect them from exploitation and radicalization
• Create a partnership between the KSA and BSA organizations to create a long-term partnership.
