Mobile Scouting in Bumthang District
Mobile Scouting, a concept to take Scouting to where it matters...to the youth.
1. Along with Scout Leaders Ngawang Gyeltshen and Dorji Wangmo from Bhutan Scouts Association (Bhutan's NSA), I went to visit the Technical Training Institute (TTI) in Chumey. Met with Rover Leader Choki Wangchuk of TTI and interacted with around 135 youth and Instructors. He had already registered 16 Rovers and there were promises of more. Scout Leader Sangay Chophel of SKHSS also joined us there.
2. Visited Gyetsa school and interacted with 112 Cub Scouts. Met with Scout Leaders Jigme Dorji and Ugyen Tashi. Scout Leader Yeshi Jurmey of Chungphel school also joined us there.
3. Lastly went to Chumey Central school and met with the Principal Sonam Gyeltshen. He is a pioneer of Scouting in Bhutan. Also got opportunity to interact with around 225 youth.
