Yangon, 30 Nov—The second international camp will jointly be conducted by Myanmar Girl Guides (MMGG) and Girl Scouts of Japan/Osaka Girl Scouts (GSJ/OGS) from 28 to 31 December in Nay Pyi Taw, with the aim of promoting relations between the two countries, sources said on Sunday.
Parents believe that the training will help their children build more confidence in themselves, take responsibility and have a wide circle of friends.
More than 40 scouts from five schools in Nay Pyi Taw will take this training opportunity together with 30 Japanese scouts, according to the Myanmar Girl Guides.
The first international camp between Myanmar and Japan was held previous year in Yangon.
Deputy Chief Commissioner Prof Daw Khin Saw Ohnma of MMGG said, “With the help of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), her organization will organize a “training of trainers” programme in February in Yangon to provide scouting qualifications to university teachers.”
She went on to say that the international community is eager to participate in the improvement of the country’s girl guides. Currently, the association is implementing its plans in partnership with Japan and Australia.
Currently, there are over 30,000 boy and girl scouts in Myanmar. The MMGG is planning to increase the number of its members in the future through scout trainings and other activities, according to the official.
In July, Myanmar Girl Guides has joined the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, the world largest voluntary organization for girls and young women, with Myanmar Boy Scouts still trying to receive a global membership certificate.—GNLM
