'Harambee Gwassi-Kenya' is an International Project of Cooperation and Solidarity supported by NGO Brownsea Foundation. The project, called IKSDP (Italian Kenyan Scout Development Project), was started in 1983 with the aim of improving the welfare among the Kenyan communities. IKSDP promotes the social, cultural and economic growth of the Nyandiwa Peninsula (Gwassi region), on the shores of Victoria Lake, one of the poorest areas of Kenya. 'Harambee' in Swahili means 'working together' and sums up the spirit of the project: the italians and Africans working side by side and with equal dignity, sharing the self-development interventions, but also to get to know one another and grow togheter.
