Annual Report 2011
2011 has been another momentous year for the World Scout Foundation - with the largest gift ever received, thanks to the confidence shown in Scouting by His Majesty King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. In our Report this year, you will read of the spectacular launch of the Messengers of Peace Initiative and the World Scout Jamboree - the largest ever - which was held in Sweden.
Our cover story, this year, takes a more-detailed look at the tremendous effort by 45,000 Scouts in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake. We look at what happened through the eyes of a few individuals, and then try to examine how this all came about. I believe you will be very impressed!
And, most importantly, I hope you see your fingerprints in each of these stories. For, behind all these successes has been years of support, encouragement, capacity building and training. With you supporting over 31 million Scouts in our Movement - it’s no wonder that King Abdullah and other world leaders recognise Scouting for the significant contribution it makes to peace and understanding throughout the world.
On behalf of our Honorary Chairman, His Majesty The King of Sweden - who has spent more time with us in 2011 than in any other year in the Foundation’s history - let me once again say a very big “Thank You”!
