Messengers of Peace (MoP)

Introduction

Throughout its history, Scouting has inspired its millions of members to make a difference – applying their leadership to creating a better world.

Scouts do some amazing things, from simple community actions to large-scale projects such as preventing bullying in schools in the UK, helping street gangs in El Salvador to reduce violence, cleaning up a playground in Texas and planting millions of trees all over Africa.

In some of the most difficult conflict areas in the world – Kashmir, Israel/Palestine, Rwanda/Burundi and Northern Ireland, to name a few – Scouts are coming together in local communities to make a difference. Adding all this together Scouts, as part of a global Movement, are making the world a more peaceful place.
