The Avonja project
started in the early 1990s to last 10 years to build an activity centre
at Bwende, Jinja on the banks of the river Nile.
The name Avonja
was adopted out of the names of the two partners - Avon Scouts and
the Scouts of Jinja.
visits by Scouts from Avon County have produced a centre that any
County in the UK would be proud to own.
Scouts and Venture
Scouts from outside Avon are welcome to join the expeditions, the
next being in August 2002. Whilst concentrating on the building of
a camp centre and supporting buildings and facilities time is always
taken out to visit the Ugandan countryside and wildlife.
