Project Africa . . . the programme


Project Africa is a long-term international community development programme. Berkshire Scouts
are supporting schools, teachers, and local communities to help secure a good education, and a good
start in life, for local children from poor rural communities in Africa . . .
young people supporting young people!

The Project Africa programme started in 2010 with Scout sections (of all ages) from Berkshire using
programme resources to learn about the lives of their peers in an African country. Click on the
Global Awareness Programme & Challenge Badge link to see the resources.

Just under 3,000 Challenge Badges have been awarded to Scouts of all ages for taing part in the
programme.

Following project work in Uganda in 2011 and 2015, Project Africa continues to support the schools at
which Scouts worked (Bukeka Children's Centre, Kavule School for the deaf, Butagaya Primary School,
and Iwololo Primary School).

In addition to building projects and other material support, the project has also provided funds

for teacher wages as well as sponsoring some individual school children. Project Africa also funded
electric power for the first time at the Bukeka Children's Centre.

Total funding for the various projects to date is in excess of £100,700 and just under 160 Berkshire
Scouts have worked at schools in Uganda.

Project Africa has now started its third phase which includes Uganda 2019. For more details about
Uganda 2019, and its associated programme, click this link.

There is a small Project Africa Team to manage and support the various elements of the programme.
