During the ceremony to celebrate Kenya Scouts Association's Patrons Day on November 24th, Uhuru Kenyatta, president of Kenya, presented an award to AVSI for its significant contribution to peace building in Garissa County, in North East Kenya. AVSI Kenya has been working with the association for 4 years, as part of a larger project “Integrated Education Response in Dadaab and Host Communities”. With funding from the U.S. State Department’s Bureau for Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM), the project delivers interventions that will increase the quality of education for refugees and host communities aligned to the education reforms in Kenya.
“The contribution made by the Scouting fraternity in this country cannot be overemphasized,” said Kenyatta, who is also the Patron of Kenya Scouts Association. “It is with pride that we award and honor several scouts, leaders and partners today. They have all made positive contributions to the impact and growth of the Kenya Scouts Association.”
