Pres. Sirleaf Declares May 24 -30 Scout Week

MONROVIA, May 22 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has by proclamation declared Sunday, May 24 to Saturday, May 30, as Scout Week to be observed as Working Holidays throughout Liberia.

The Proclamation calls upon the Ministry of  Youth and  Sports, Ministry of Education, Local Government and community leaders, citizens and foreign residents as well as all registered scouts to join the Liberia Scout Association in organizing appropriate programs that will highlight the spirit  and mission of the scout movement throughout Liberia.

According to the Proclamation, May 30, 2015, will be commemorated as the 92nd Anniversary of the Liberia Scout Association under the theme: “Taking Scouting to the People".

Foreign Ministry release maintains that the spirit of voluntarism which the Scout Movement is noted for has now gripped the society, thereby calling upon all scouts to renew this voluntarism.

The release said this can be done by engaging in national programs and projects geared towards empowering the young people, as it relates to the promotion of good governance and patriotism.

The Proclamation says the aims and ideals of the Scout Movement throughout the world and Liberia in particular, should be encouraged by the Government and people.

The training of boys and girls, young people and adults for leadership and good citizenship in the church, school, community and state, is of primary importance to the development of the Republic, the release noted.
