A delegation of the Saudi Arabian Boy Scouts Association is restoring and maintaining the homes of poor families in rural areas of Peru, and providing adequate shelter to those in need.

The head of the delegation, Nasser Al-Aqeel, said the initiative is in line with efforts to promote community service and development.

Such initiatives help scouts “to acquire new skills and experiences that would enable them to hone the skills necessary to meet the requirements of partnership with other educational and social institutions,” he added.

The Saudis are among more than 2,000 scouts from 160 national associations worldwide participating in a meeting of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), hosted and organized by the Scout Association of Peru for people aged 18 to 25.

The event includes workshops on self-development, effective communication and financial intelligence, among other topics.

It also features courses on subjects such as photography, reforestation, agriculture and human rights, as well as traditional games.
