Chief Scouts Commissioner Dr. Tin Nyo met with Mr. Paul Parkinson, the Regional Chair of the Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Committee, at the Diamond Jubilee Hall of the Yangon University yesterday.
At the meeting, Dr. Tin Nyo spoke about how joining the scouts can have a positive impact on a person’s life and that scouts generally help their community and also on topics related to sanitation. He also expressed his gratitude towards the Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Committee for providing training to Myanmar scouts about critical thinking involved in the peace process.
Mr. Parkinson also expressed his delight that Myanmar managed to become a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) in such a short time. He said their Committee will do their best to provide training similar to the recent Peacemaker workshops and for scouts in Myanmar to be able to join in on the World Scout Jamboree.
Earlier in the day, Dr. Tin Nyo met with the participating scouts and their instructors at the training for coordinators of Messengers of Peace and gave words of encouragement.
Later in the afternoon, members of the Asia-Pacific Scout Committee and members of the Myanmar Scout Association discussed the strengths and weaknesses of Myanmar’s scouts and possible expansion of the Scout Association’s processes. This was followed by Mr. Parkinson explaining the mission of WOSM and how the Asia-Pacific Committee can provide support to Myanmar’s scouts.
