WFPSC supports this:

Dear all,

My Woodcraft Folk group is embarking on an ambitious project exploring children's rights in East London and Palestine.  To raise funds for the project, my friend Stuart and his dog Motsinski, the Singing Terrier, will be going on a very big walk, coast to coast across Wales from Porthcawl on the Bristol Channel to Llanfairfechan on the Irish Sea, beginning on 5th April.  We would really appreciate your support.  If you are able to support our project you can make a contribution by going to our Facebook page:

Or by texting  MOTT80, followed by the amount you want to donate to 70070 

Below is a summary of the project and more details can be found at:
In 2015 a group of 20 young people and their leaders from Newham and Waltham Forest Woodcraft will take part in a cultural exchange with young people from Palestine.  The exchange will explore the rights of young people in both countries, looking at their respective experiences and how their rights are upheld and infringed.  In preparation the young people will participate in workshops to develop their understanding of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; learn about the experience of young people within the youth justice system; and explore the impact of unemployment and poverty on young people.  They will develop a forum theatre performance that they will take to Palestine to share and further develop with the Aida Youth Theatre and Freedom Theatre in Jenin. They will make a film of the project that will be shown to youth and community groups (and others) to raise awareness and provoke debate about the rights of young people in East London and Palestine.  A group of 10 Palestinians will make a return visit to England in the latter part of the year. The young people will be involved in the design, implementation and monitoring of the project.

Many thanks
