Nile 2010 was a project led by Scouts based in Bournemouth, UK. In the summer of 2010, 28 Scouts and Leaders left Bournemouth for 5 weeks to work with the Scouts of Jinja in Southern Uganda and assist in the building of a vocational training centre for orphans and vulnerable children of the Jinja District (Butagaya Sub-County). During the preceding 18 months each Scout and Leader raised funds for the expedition and initial build; totalling approx £110,000.00. Now the initial expedition has been undertaken successfully the Nile 2010 project lives on with the objective of empowering and supporting the continued sustainability and growth of the centre for its long term success. A second expedition was undertaken in 2016 which enabled the development of two outdoor workshops, facilitating the teaching of Construction and Carpentry. The next expedition will be in the Summer of 2023 and be supported by members of the 1st Wessex and Bournemouth Scouts.
