Moses Engadu Joins the Africa Regional Office as Global U-Report Coordinator
Moses Engadu, from Uganda, introduces himself as a passionate Scout, a Messenger of Peace and an agent of Change; an ingenious, resilient and futuristic individual who is very proud of his Scouting experience.
He joined Scouting in 1991 at the age of 10 and has been actively involved in Scouting at national, regional and international level.
In 2009, he was recruited as the Executive Director and led the team that organized the 3rd World Scout Interreligious Symposium from 21st to 25th October 2009 at Hotel Africana, Kampala, Uganda. This event significantly raised the profile of Scouting in Uganda.
In 2010, he joined Uganda Scouts Association as Director Resource Mobilization and Capacity Building where he led efforts to position Scouting as the leading educational youth movement enabling millions of young people in Uganda to become active citizens leading positive change in their communities. In this position, he helped to develop and managed strong partnerships with the Government of Uganda and development partners like UNICEF and UNESCO.
Moses is better known for his efforts to promote U-report. He has actively promoted U-report in Africa and beyond. Notably, in August 2014 during the World Scout Conference in Slovenia, Moses moved and aggressively campaigned for a resolution, which was adopted for the World Organization of the Scout Movement to use U-report as a tool in achieving its strategic priorities and initiatives. As a result of that, a global partnership agreement between WOSM and UNICEF on U-report and Youth Engagement was signed in November 2014.
Moses has now joined the World Scout Bureau as the U-report Global Coordinator and is based in Nairobi. Moses will be responsible for coordinating the global partnership between UNICEF and WOSM on U-report and Youth Engagement specifically coordinating and promoting the usage of the global U-report platform to establish communication sharing and opinion polling amongst Scouts globally. He will reach out to your NSOs to encourage and actively enroll Scouts to participate in global and national advocacy and mobilization efforts and further national U-report rollouts.
We welcome and wish him every success in his new position.
