Welcome to the Mandinari River Lodge Scouts Troop, this story is about a partnership between the members of the lodge and the creation of the village scout troop.
The owner Mike Gould came through the Scout movement and eventually became a leader with a local troop in the UK
In the first 2 years of visiting Gambia, Mike was overwhelmed with the enthusiasm from the youth of Mandinari Village in wanting to learn new skills.
Seeing the eagerness to learn we first organised a youth foundation, anyone wanting to learn new skills were welcome.
With the older villagers developing at a fantastic rate it was the perfect time to bring on the younger people and set up a troop that could follow the teachings of the World Scout Movement.
