This blog will be a constantly updated account of the efforts of a group of youth and adults from Scouts Canada and their work in Welkom, Free State Province, South Africa.  The group is composed of youth aged 14-26 and adults from BC to Nova Scotia.  Check back often to stay up to date with their latest challenges and accomplishments as they work to help achieve the first of the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations - to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger - by installing rainwater reservoirs at local public schools to help irrigate community gardens and provide a continuous source of fresh water.

Never knew this type of international opportunity was available through Scouting?  Why not check out the website to learn more at
