As a way to celebrate the country’s centenary of Scouting, in 2013, the Asociación de Scouts de Colombia started a challenging Messengers of Peace project aimed at supporting families living in vulnerable conditions. Under the theme “100 Dates, 100 Dwellings, 100 Dreams”, this joint effort between Scouts, communities and other Non-Governmental Organizations, intends to build 100 pre-fabricated houses through the current year to help 100 needing families and provide them with a comfortable and decent place to live.

After this first building phase, the volunteers, who have been trained and actively involved in the project, both from Asociación de Scouts de Colombia and the Catalina Munoz Foundation, will also provide social backing to the communities, mainly by introducing Scouting and the Scout method.

This collective effort is an example of a strengthened partnership between Scouts and communities in order to help create a better world.
