More volunteers opening up for Scouting in Afghanistan

Miércoles, Mayo 21, 2014

More adult volunteers in Afghanistan are opening up to Scouting as PARSA (Physiotherapy And Rehabilitation Support to Afghanistan) organized another Basic Unit Leaders Training Course for 34 adults from 17 to 23 May at the Scout Training Centre, in Kabul.

PARSA is playing a major role in the revival of Scouting in the country. Just recently, Afghanistan Scout Volunteers Society (ASVS), whose members are adult volunteers has been registered with the Ministry of Justice.

To inspire more adults joining Scouting, a Wood Badge was awarded to Akhtir Mohammad who is in-charge of Scouting in Nangarhar, one of the 34 provinces of Afghanistan with having over 9,700 Scouts (2,700 female).

At the opening ceremony, PARSA Executive Director Marnie Gustavson applauded the small group of people who she says represent the bigger community and are future of Afghanistan, not in words but in action.

She added, “PARSA is honoured to host this course and hear your voice. Your work will continue to be carried in all 34 provinces. Volunteers will be stepping forward to work for Afghanistan to take responsibility to build peace and stability.”

Syed Hussain Agha, Chairman of Afghan Scout Volunteers Society was the main guest of the course, joined by PARSA country director Dr Mohd Yasin Farid and representatives of Maratoon province.
