India's good Scouting practices evident in recent CNV Mission

1. Ene 2010

Representatives of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) in the Asia-Pacific Region largely appreciated the progress of the Bharat Scouts and Guides (BSG) as a well-established organization at the recent Committee NSO Visit (CNV) held in New Delhi from 5th to 7th May 2010.

Using the eight-point guideline of the CNV Package, members of the visiting team identified a number of good practices of the BS&G that could be worth-sharing with other organizations. An area that shows potential is how BS&G markets Scouting to wider targets.

In the dialogue with the Rovers and Rangers in New Delhi and nearby areas, the Committee listened to their experiences and were pleased to hear their suggestions on how Scouting and Guiding can be improved in various areas.

This CNV Mission to India is part of the ongoing programme of the Regional Scout Committee to visit every National Scout Organisation within the region before the middle of 2011, making it the 14th NSO to be covered under the programme since early 2008. BS&G members are registered both WOSM and WAGGGS.

The visiting team comprised of first Vice-Chairman Mr Prakorb Mukura, members Mr Fazlur Rahman and Shree Ram Lamichhane, accompanied by Regional Director Abdullah Rasheed and APR Director Mr Thian Hiong-Boon. Counterparts from WAGGGS Asia-Pacific Committee member Ms Normala Baharudin and Regional Director Ms Ming Fe Wu were present.

Bharat Scouts & Guides National Commissioner L. M. Jain headed the team of senior volunteers and professionals who actively participated in the CNV deliberation.
