Afghanistan National Scout Association developed a COVID-19 achievement badge for Scouts which will be awarded to those who will participate in the COVID-19 awareness campaign as well as those who will practice the prevention measures with their families, with women, and their local communities.

 

 The project was designed in two phases: (1) Conducting COVID-19 Awareness training for Afghan Girl Scouts and, (2) Scouts Community Outreach – Practicing the COVID-19 Prevention Measures with women in local communities. A total of 64 Scouts and 100 women underwent four training sessions from the last week of August to the first week of September in Herat and Samangan.  In addition, 100 hygiene kits were distributed during the training.

 

Trained Scouts started their own community outreach program and introduced the COVID-19 prevention measures to women in their own neighborhood. Throughout this project, 164 families were equipped with knowledge on how to protect themselves and their family members from the COVID-19 disease.
