#Unguvu blog number 3! Sorry for the delay- we're posting when the internet's working!!
Thursday was a very interesting day for everybody, exposing us to various diverse areas and cultural backgrounds, including projects that Ethiopian Scouts are involved in. These were things like gardening projects to help orphan, the elderly, the blind and the homeless. We also visited the training camp for Ethiopian Scouts that was donated by the Ethiopian Government, and later visited an Ethiopian museum which included the bedrooms and bathrooms of the Ethiopian King. We then visited an Ethiopian market. Later in the evening, the team ended their visit to the town at an interesting Ethiopian restaurant where they ate dinner and experienced Ethiopian music and dance.
• You can use Scout projects to fund other good causes within Scouting.
• Ethiopia has a rich and interesting culture.
Big Question- What is the impact of diversity on religion, and religious groups, to make Scouting more inclusive?
Big idea- There are two different ways to go- a very religious scouting programme and then you need to be really aware to try and not exclude other people, or not allow the Scout programme to be so influenced by religion then you need to be aware so that religious people do not feel excluded from your programme.
