Thanks to an A4U Grant awarded by Agenzija Zghazagh to TSAM Xaghra Scout Group, they have been able to continue equipping their recently renovated headquarters.
Group Scout Leader Josmar Azzopardi, remarked that, “thanks to the co-financing of the project, we were able to throw away the old metal cabinets and invest in a custom-made storage solution to our main hall.”
“One could easily assume that investing in the cabinets was just a decision by some of the Scout Leaders” said Josmar Azzopardi. “However, the Group took a proactive approach to empowering our young members through this project.”
He added that, “back in November last year, through a number of discussions with our members, we decided that investing in a wooden storage solution for the hall was the priority for the Group. Once the project was approved in February, several members contributed at the design stage to have the best-optimised solution.”
“The whole storage solution was installed by the selected supplier at the start of September and was in use by the new Scouting Year at the end of the month,” said Josmar.
He concluded by saying that “the new space has now even allowed us to empower our young members by being responsible for the organisation and maintaining of their own section’s cabinet.”
