11th World Rover Moot

The 150 strong UK Contingent to the 11th World Scout Moot, held in Mexico in July 2000, sponsored 2 young people from Uganda. Prossy Molly Mbambu and Kenneth Rukundo joined the UK Contingent when they arrived in London at the beginning of July. Lancashire Scout in Preston entertained Kenneth at a BBQ held in his honour while Prsyy enjoyed a day in Cuernavaca visiting the Guide Centre.

The two Ugandan Scouts joined in with the pre-Moot activities in Mexico. An afternoon on Xochimilco boats and Marriachi men playing local music. Afterwards a tour of Mexico City.

The two Ugandans thoroghly enjoyed the Moot and made new friends all over the world. The UK Scouts said it was a priviledge to have them along and they enjoyed listing to stories of Uganda and looking at photographs of the country. One of the UK Scouts said "We learnt a tremendous amount from them about life in Africa".

On route back from Mexico the two Scouts spent a short period at the Docklands Scout project before flying back to Uganda.
