Container to be sent to Swaziland with equipment to be used at the youth centre
July 22, 2017
This weekend saw 45 Explorer Scouts and Scout Leaders receiving a 40-foot container they will send in December to the Malibeni Youth Centre Project in Swaziland. It arrived at Phasels Wood Scout site Friday morning.
The Explorer Scouts and leaders have been collecting in donations of Books, Clothes, tents, Adult bikes, School Stationary, computers and sports Equipment for a few weeks and this weekend the big sort and pack began.
The Scouts split into 5 teams to sort out the donations. The container is close to being half full already, but we still desperately need more adult bikes to help the Senior School children to get to School as many must walk over 5 miles to School.
The Scouts will continue to collect in donations until late December when the container will make its final journey to Swaziland. The Scouts will then see it in July 2018 when they go to continue with the building of Youth Centre.
The container will be turned to computer suite when it is at the project site.
