Le premier septembre dernier, le Parlement du Costa Rica a reconnu l’Association des Guides et Scouts comme Institution Méritante de la Patrie, cette reconnaissance étant la distinction étatique la plus élevée que puisse recevoir une organisation. L’Assemblée Législative a pris cette décision en se basant sur le travail social effectué par l’Association des Guides et Scouts dans le domaine de l’éducation des enfants et des adolescents, en leur inculquant des valeurs, la vie en plein air et les services rendus à la communauté.
Pour l’Association des Guides et Scouts du Costa Rica, cette distinction représente un grand soutien de la part de l’Etat costaricain et un compromis pour continuer à travailler pour l’enfance et la jeunesse de leur pays.

And of course, a country as Egypt, by itself is amazing and fascinating!
