Scouting trio fundraise for charitable trip to Namibia

LAUREEN SWEENEY, Westmount Independent
Published: Thursday, March 26, 2008

Three members of Westmount Scouting know that after this summer their lives will be changed forever.

Rovers Brian Bevand and Kendra Girdwood, 20, and Venturer Nathan Butcher, 17, will forsake summer job opportunities to spend six weeks building ventilated pit latrines for pre-schools in Namibia, Africa, to improve sanitation and provide disease vector control.

“I think it will be an amazing development experience,” said Butcher, a student at Vanier College. “It will be good for the people there and lifechanging for us.”

“It will definitely change all of our lives,” Girdwood agreed.

The trio is part of a contingent of 28 Venturers, Rovers and trip leaders from Montreal who will take part in an international development project in cooperation with the Namibian Scouts Association. The group will work in the area around Okahandja, a town just north of Windhoek, the capital, where some 18 preschools are located.

The Quebec Bird Protection Agency is financing a one day outing to a migratory nature area called Baie du Febvre (between Quebec City and Trois Rivières) on Sunday, April 13. This event is open to Scouts and Venturers and is an opportunity to see birds congregating along the St Lawrence in anticipation of moving north to their nesting grounds. Last year 45 species were sighted including Golden Eagle.
Please speak to Neil or Virginia if you are interested in joining the group. Details and schedule to follow.
