"Scouting is a Game with a purpose. Fun is the game, learning is the process and values are the purpose" Robert Baden Powell
On the above quote by the Scouts founder (Sir Robert Baden Powell), it helps us to remember and easily explain what SCOUTING is all about. We believe that all our members enjoy their missions and learn new life skills along their path of their scouting life. In simple terms, from the young age we encourage them by giving measurable challenges in decision making, team work, collaboration and leadership.
"Build a better world"
The above is the WOSM mission statement which is a single world wide organisation drive us to an objective to educate our young people through non formal education using the Scout Method that make each individual as self reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person.
SCOUTING IS FUN
