The “Ticket to Life” project (TTL) is a Kenya Scout Association initiative which began more than ten years ago. It is based on a Peer to Peer method using Scouts to interact with homeless children and reintegrate them into society. It does this by welcoming them, if they choose, into Scouting through mentoring, personal development, team spirit, challenge, education, self- exploration and discovery of self-worth and esteem.
