Each night during the Jamboree we asked one of the international staff into the studio to talk about Scouting in their home country. One of these was Peter Omondi from Kenya.  As well as his Scouting Peter is involved in a Peace Project centered around 7-a-side football.  We'll be keeping in touch with Peter to see how all this goes....   [soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/251751158" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="450" iframe="true" /]
