Moot inspires Kenyan Children

1st Jan 2010

The moot has attracted a lot of admiration from young children in the neighbourhoods where the participants have been carrying out expedition activities.

Many of these children are Scouts, and they have been eager to interact with the Rovers from other countries. Young, beautiful and excited, the children are keen to learn about Scouting in other countries.

They have big dreams. They want to advance their education. “What would you like to do in the future?”, I asked one of them. “I want to be an electrical engineer.”

Scouting in Kenya is strong in schools and receives government support through the ministry of Youth and Sports as well as the Ministry of Education.
