Scouting trio fundraise for charitable trip to Namibia

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.
