BUILDING PEACE OVER THE OCEANS. A SIMPLE MESSENGER OF PEACE ACTIVITY
This is a activity between Scouts of two countries. Keywords and phrases are:
knowing each other, Sharing, echange information, find our cultures, joint actions participation, solidarity, courtesy Building peace on grass root level
We have millions ot children, youth and adult all over the World want to prepare ourselves and service to global peace by service and involving in many areas like environment, health disaster relieve, helping.
There is inspiring activities between troops of countries and scouts at every level. From associations to patrols. Some flying thousands kilometers to another country ( I hope they offset the carbon by planting trees and recycling) to give solidarity in service and help to friends, brother scouts children act communities with funds generated by themselves or with the help of some organization. This one don’t need any funds may be some pocket money to end a badge or some present. This is heart to heart friendship and knowing each other experience.
I started to focus on Rwanda after genocide and Read the story of a scout named Gilbert who worked in a refugee camp and made a newsletter to Turkish Guides ad Scouts. Later we became friends on internet and later on facebook with Scout leader Nkurunziza Lewis We are still in communication and learning ech other’s scouting life. Our activities projects events like African Scout Day, JOTA JOTI participation Thinking Day, Founder’s Day, Rallies national camps, national congresses, programs on ground level
This is a very important way to build up peace from deep soul fo scouts. There is 40 million scouts . I don’t know may be a million of troops . If we exchange similar activities we generate the greatest peace movement to support messengers of peace, and move a little bit to the real peace.
Here is some photos and mails we exchanged and and products mails and files we made
Try it save some time for doing it. You may start on coming International Day of youth or by participating to clean up the world. May be Clean up the World or Black Sea or Mediterranean or Indian ocean. JOTA JOTI or one of the many opportunities available in the world of Scouting
NOTE: Probably I still have some promises to may friend Nkurunziza But he is very courteous on that by not remanding them to me. We enjoy only what we done and look for new opportunities
Here is some end products of friendship. Soon I will go on and post similar actions to make some samples and ideas on my friends in other countries too. It is really an enjoying activity Please you to do so
