the pencil project

14. Nov 2013

I am going to try to convince 100 British scout troops to send parcels of pencils (and other school specific stationery) to OMAR JATTA, c/o Adama Loum, Central Bank of the gambia, 1/2 Ecowas Avenue, Banjul, The Gambia. If anyone reading this would like to contribute it would be great but please do not send money.

Hi Omar,
My name is Jenna, and I have just become a cub scout leader in the UK and my cub pack are working towards their global badge. My Partner Lewis and I are visiting Gambia on holiday in November and would love to get my cub pack involved in this project if it is still running. Could we bring some things out with us? And would it be OK for my Cub pack to write to some of your scouts as part of their badge?
Please get in touch.
