Please take a minute out of your busy schedule to vote for the Kenyan finalist for the World Challenge Project: "Hawkers Market Girls Centre" at: http://www.theworldchallenge.co.uk/html/home.html
The World Challenge is a global competition aimed at finding projects or small businesses from around the world that have shown enterprise and innovation at a grass roots level. Funded by the BBC World News and Newsweek Magazine.
Hawkers Market Girls Centre is a community based project with Kenya Girl Guides as a partner. Girls scavenging in the Hawkers markets and other markets of Kenya had not been noticed and targeted for any intervention. Nobody had previously understood who the girls were, or what they were facing. We took the initiative to find what their needs were and organized to educate and train them without taking them away from their environment. Food and money were their basic requirements and this together with the need to keep the market clean became our driving force.
HMGC provides the girls with security and refuge from abuse. The girls who come to the market are adolescents who come from families where both parents are unemployed or from single parents or orphans. Due to the desperate situations, some parents force their young girls into prostitution as away of raising income for the family. At HMGC, they learn environmental education, vocational skills, health education, and entrepreneurship. By using the skill acquired, the girl becomes empowered economically by being in a position to be able to earn a living through employment or starting own businesses.
The project and the girls need your support on this initiative.
Thank you in advance for your gracious support.

This year is the 50th Anniversary of our scout group (Solarino 1) and we are planning to organize a series of activities to celebrate and make scouting known to the town and to a larger public. The Organising Committee has decided to prepare a public exhibition of all the scouts and guides badges from all nations around the world.
Can you help me to realize this project? If you can send me by air mail your national badges.
This is my address:

I'm a Spanish scout, from the city of Valencia. I'm the scouter of a section called Esculta, for teenagers from 15 to 18. They are working during this year in an international project, and would like to count with your collaboration. It consists in making a mural with scout badges, and we are trying to get badges from the bigger number of countries we are able to contact. In return we send Spanish badges to everyone who posts their badges to us. Would you like to take part in our project?
If you want more information about our scout group I will be pleased to give you. I'd like to know more about your association too.
I wait for your answer.
Yours in scouting and kind regards from Spain.
Grupo Scout Sempre Avant
P.D. We are not getting badges for selling the mural or our benefits, all the people who sent badges to us has received our badges and normally they received before we received theirs. We are open to all the suggestions you add to our project of exchange.

I'm Anna Norgia and I'm an Italian scout team leader (FIS Association). I live in the north of Italy in between of Milan and Turin, at the beginning of the Alps.
I work for a wool spinning mill, in the sale division for the Asian markets and my company gave me the chance to select new countries for expanding our business.
Of course I know that we share the same passion for scouting and you are not concerned in the textile field, but I'm writing you to check if there's someone in your scout organization, involved in the textile market that could give me some information about my research.
For the moment I thank you very much for your kind attention and I hope you will be able to supply me interesting contacts that will be able to give me some advices and maybe we will have the chance to meet personally in the future.
With best regards

I am a Senior Guide wishing to contact a unit in Malaysia.
I am travelling to Malaysia in late September and would like to broaden my understanding of world guiding and how guiding works in other cultures. I will be visiting both Penang and Kuala Lumpur and would love to meet guides from either of these areas. Also, I do not know Malaysian at all, will this be a problem?
I would be very thankful if you could respond as soon as possible.

My name is Heather and I'm from the United states. I was working on the Olympic badge from China and one of the requirements says to get a pen pal from Asia. Well I had to "jump" through hoops to get to where I am now. Is there anyway that I could get a pen pal from there? I would love to have one that I could get to know and everything. If you could that would be great.
