In the first ever Rover Moot of Nepal Scouts to celebrate the Rover Centenary, Prime Minister and Patron of Nepal Scouts, Mr. K.P. Sharma Oli, greeted the young people from different parts of Nepal who took part in this historic event.

“Scouting should be an ideal youth organization in Nepal.  Seeing young people participate brings me great pleasure with a Scouting programme that provides them with a sense of sharing, caring, and cultural exchange,” said the Prime Minister.

The Rover Moot was held on 31 May – 4 June 2019 in Pokhara, which gathered nearly 3,000 participants from different parts of Nepal, including Rovers from Bangladesh, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and The General Association of the Scouts of China. Adding value to the Moot was its location, Pokhara, considered the gateway to world-famous treks around the Annapurna ranges.

Chief Scout and Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Mr. Jagat Bahadur Sunar chaired the opening and acknowledged that Nepal Scouts has stepped into a new era and will be the leading youth movement in the country.  He said that Nepal Scouts will catch pace in development by reaching out to more young people to expand membership.
