Scouts lead gift-giving project: Clothe the Globe
A group of Senior and Rover Scouts from Rizal Province in the Philippines, south of capital Manila, spearheaded a gift-giving project for 146 kids in a far-flung school in the province. The Scouts had to hike for several hours and cross two rivers to reach the school.
Dubbed as Clothe the Globe and Walk the World, the project gathered school supplies and several teaching supplies for the teachers, textbooks and magazines from Bato Balani Foundation, and some sports equipment for the school to be regularly used by the students. They also collected old clothes and distributed the same to the children. Since the school was located in a far-flung village, they also donated brand new slippers to the children to be used every day and as a way of protecting their feet.
On the other hand, 146 children also received pre-loved toys, hygiene kits and some coloring books.
Apart from the gift-giving project, the Rover Scouts also conducted an orientation about the Scout Movement and the programs of Scouting, as well as some Scout games and challenges.
The project was organised by the Scout Movement of Roosevelt College Rodriguez thru Mr. Karl Lyel B. Lim, in partnership with their school’s teaching and non-teaching personnel, the Interact Club, Badminton Club and the Art Club.
