Better World Framework: Enhancing Social Impact of Scouting in Africa
The Messengers of Peace initiative (MoP) continues to build on the cumulative gains made across the region in the lives of individual young people, their communities and NSOs. Over 30 NSOs have benefited from the MoP inputs into their programmes and the desire to grow the impact of Scouting is increasingly becoming more apparent.
In spite of the significant inputs so far, the increase in the number of new projects driven by NSOs real needs only challenges us to become more intentional to increase capacity in order to sustain this growth and impact for the benefit of more young people.
In the same framework, many National Scout Organizations (NSOs) face the challenge of inadequate capacity to effectively develop and implement communication strategies to better tell Scout stories. This has contributed to low visibility of Scouting in the region majorly due to limited human resources, technical ability and technology access.
The project aims at providing a strategic framework to inspire NSOs to improve their communications and operationalize the Better World Framework in their programmes across the structures for greater social impact.
This project intends therefore to fill in the gaps through enhanced coordination, administration as well as better communication of the life changing story of Scouting.
The project aims at proving a strategic framework to inspire NSOs to improve their communications and operationalize the Better World Framework in their programmes across the structures for greater social impact. The project will offer the opportunity to;
Strengthen the network of communications professionals and volunteers who will play a key role in supporting the development and delivery of communication support services to NSOs and the region. We expect that NSOs will become better equipped to tell the life changing stories of Scouting in the Region.
Strengthen the capacity of NSOs to develop relavant tools and integrate the outputs of the project activities within their respective their National and zonal development plans.
Call to more action, encourage and empower young leaders to take on and lead more community based local initiatives to change the world into a Better as they inspire more to join Scouting.
Enabling RDC members to better support NSOs to develop and submit more quality projects/programmes.
