Last updated: 12.55pm, Thursday 23rd June 2011
Various groups from all across Scotland are taking part in this exciting project and it was an honour for the East End that the Urban Fox programme was identified as one of the foremost projects of its type and selected by “Roars Not Whispers”, Youthlink Scotland and Young Scot as one of the places to visit by the Bangladeshi and Pakistani students.
This exchange programme certainly has benefits for two of the volunteers of the Urban Fox programme as next week they will be heading for Bangladesh and Pakistan to increase their knowledge and understanding of the work that is being done in both countries for youngsters. There are Five main themes for the social action projects based on community and youth development.
These are, Promotion of Livelihoods, Peaceful Co-existance, Environmental Protection, Provision of Basic Needs and Access to Political Participation.
The trip will be a fantastic opportunity for the youngsters and we will keep you up-dated in the next few weeks as to how they get on.
Things like this can only be good for the future of young people in the East End and it’s great to see they are being encouraged by Michael McCourt and the team at Urban Fox who certainly promote youth development in the area as a whole.
