Messenger of Peace Roadshow at the 3rd Joint Jamborette of Boy Scout and Girl Scout of the Philippines - Valenzuela City Council
16. April 2014 - 10:46
The Brighton Venturers Team, a community based scout outfit of the BSP Manila Council, in collaboration with the BSP Valenzuela City Council, led the implementation of the Messenger of Peace module in the recently concluded "3rd Boy Scout and Girl Scout Joint Jamborette of Valenzuela Council" held in Green Country Farm Resort, Meycauayan, Bulacan last April 7-10, 2014.
The said jamborette was attended by delegations representing the 7 districts of Valenzuela City, both coming from the Boy Scout and Girl Scout division. Total attendees reached almost 1,500 scouts. The event was sponsored by the City Government of Valenzuela, led by Mayor Rex Gatchalian and Congressman Win Gatchalian, the current Chairman of Valenzuela City Council.
Same as what the team did in Misamis Oriental's Jamboree, the MOP module includes the following sub-activities: Video Presentation about Peace and Networking, Online Registration Drive for the Scout.org online platform, Drawing for Peace, Sing-A-Song, Team Building/Networking and Green Campaign lecture from our DENR (Department of Environment and National Resources) representative.
We would like to express our gratitude to the GSP Valenzuela Executive Committee for allowing us to conduct this activity and include this global initiative in their jamborette program. This is the first time that the GSP group participated in the Messenger of Peace Campaign.
Smart Communications (https://www.facebook.com/SmartCommunications), the largest telecom company in the Philippines and our partner for this MOP Roadshow, provided event tent structures and internet connection. The items were used on our outdoor activities and for the online registration of scouts on Scout.org platform.
