CJK-Bangladesh Scouts agree on partnership projects
1. Jan 2013
Bangladesh Scouts and the CJK – which stands for Scouts of China, Japan, Korea – jointly agreed to launch a new six-year project based in Bangladesh from 2014 to 2019.
A pre-inspection team of CJK Rover Scouts visited the project sites in Kalapara (Patuakhali), Jajira (Shariatpur) and Jamalpur on 13-19 February 2013. Officials of concerned NSOs signed the agreement on 19 February 2013 at the National Headquarters of Bangladesh Scouts in Dhaka.
The partnership project aims to provide opportunities for Rover Scouts from Scouts of China, Korea, Japan and Bangladesh to work on an international environment project while fostering friendship and doing community service in villages. Services will include awareness campaigns related to primary health care and nature conservation, which match national policies and the needs of the project areas in Bangladesh.
The project will commence activities approximately for 10 days of every February at designated villages in Bangladesh. Each CJK NSO will send 10 Rover Scouts with an adult leader for a maximum 30 Rover Scouts for every project. Corresponding number of Rover Scouts from Bangladesh will join the International Patrol and will take care of cultural, linguistic and logistical support.
