CLIMB TO CHANGE A LIFE 2019
PENANG HILL 21 September 2019 – On this United Nations International Day of Peace, a group of 252 boy scouts and girl guides participated in the Climb to Change a Life (CTCAL) program organized by the GeorgeTown (South) Scout District, with collaboration with Zy Movement Foundation of Thailand.
Haji Zulkafli Kamaruddin, scout Chief State Commissioner of Penang, accompanied by Mr P’ng Lai Heng, scout District Chairman, Mr Oi Siou Hean, scout District Commissioner, and Mr Walter Lee Eng Siang, a king’s scout who is also the Founder and President of Zy Movement Foundation, launched the flag off ceremony at the Penang Hill Middle Station at 7am.
The Boy Scouts of Georgetown South had embraced this event because it aligns with the SCOUT'S PROMISE and through an otherwise mundane event, can now not only help children with movement disability achieve something that they would otherwise not be able to do on their own.
It also allows the parents to witness the potential of their children shown when they are having fun.
Even the volunteers learned for themselves in the process, of how the Differently-Abled community too, can do things just like them.
Most importantly, the activity can be repeated time and again and hence befits the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SPG) of the UNITED NATIONS.
Thus is "INCLUSIVE SCOUTING" in the 21st Century.
