CJK roves went to Bangladesh for community service project

Rover scouts from Taiwan, Japan and Korea went to Bangladesh to launch the CJK-B Project on 11-23 February 2014.

CJK Rover project is a joint project among Scouts of China (Taiwan), Scout Association of Japan and Korea Scout Association. One of the CJK project objectives is to carry out community service, especially on the themes of Primary Health Care, Environment, etc. The project used to be carried out in Marikina, Philippines for the past ten years. This is the first time for CJK rovers to join their brother and sister rovers in Bangladesh for community service project.

During the project in Bangladesh, CJK rovers went to villages in Jamalpur to do base line survey, provide medicines and organize games and demonstration booth to promote the knowledge of primary health care to the villagers. They also built a garbage pit and burner in the village.

CJK-B project will be carried out in 6 years of time. Rover scouts will have a review meeting on 22 February to review the project and make recommendation to future project.
