Question

How to finance international scouting?

16th Feb 2014

Hi,
my name is Marketa, I'm scout leader in the Czech republic. We made a connection with scouts in Thailand and we would like to invite them to czech national sea scouts Jamboree to change experience and find out what are the same and different points.
Is there any chance to get money to pay part of tickets? Does anybody have any experience in this way?
I will be grateful for each reaction

Thanks

Hello Marketa,

You can ask the following sectors to fund the subsidy of plane tickets:
1.) Local Government Unit that supports Scouting in your area
2.) Donors*
3.) Private/Business Companies*

* Be sure to make and submit a Final Report (documentation and detailed expense report) to your sponsors for transparency purposes and auditing.

Marketa please send an email to the European Regional Office of WOSM in Geneva (details on scout.org/europe) and explain your needs. Thanks a lot.
