GHISP

Welcome to the Gambia Hornchurch International Scout Project Section

SO WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

In 2009, Dragon Explorer Unit visited The Gambia to commence the process of creating a link to the Gambia Scouts with Hornchurch Scout District.

During this trip the participants experienced life in The Gambia and gained a greater cultural understanding.

In 2010, two Gambian Scouters visited the UK and it was then their turn to experience a whole new type of Scouting in a completely different environment to home.

Following these expeditions, the GHISP was created and a trip to visit The Gambia in 2014 was undertaken.

The GHISP (pronounced like ‘crisp’) was created to:

  • Develop greater mutual cultural understanding between the UK and Gambian scouts.
  • Help improve Scouting in the Upper River Region of The Gambia.
  • Improve international scouting opportunities in the 14-25 year olds in Hornchurch District.
  • Achieve the award of Explorer Belts in Hornchurch District.
  • Facilitate joint projects between Explorer Scout Units and the Scout Network in Hornchurch District
