A team of scouts from Castle Douglas in Scotland have returned from their trip to Kenya.
During a packed two week visit, they completed the construction of five double-pit latrines which were funded by local donations and helped a community repair roads.

They were also invited to visit a local high school to meet their Kenyan counterparts.

It wasn’t all work though as the troop took time up to explore the East African country including a 14,000 foot climb up Mount Kenya. The two-day hike proved particularly difficult for some as they experienced the side effects of being at a high altitude.

At the end of their Kenyan trip, the Scottish scouts visited the grave of organisation founder Lord Baden-Powell’s grave in Nyeri where they renewed their promises and enjoyed a games session with Scouts from the Aberdare mountains.
