Caption submitted with the photo: “This photo was taken during a training camp for young scouts in Machakos County. The camp was attended by boy scouts and girls scouts from different institutions. The objective of the training was to impact useful skills and educate the young people to become responsible citizens who will be useful to their local, national and international communities. It was also to build them physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and socially and thus contribute to good character. Among the areas of focus were entrepreneurial skills, leadership skills, environmental conservation, health education and self development. The scouts were also guided on how to come up with project ideas and use the locally available materials to implement them. Impacting skills and knowledge to these young people helps them to become self reliant and also be able to deal with situations in their societies. I am a volunteer scout leader and I organise for many such trainings in different schools in Nairobi and this has taken place for 4 years now and from this we have been able to get young men and women who have been able to stand by themselves and have brought solutions to their communities.”
