 Venture Scout Michael Paredes, a member of the 5th Cayo Our Lady of Guadalupe Scout Group, recently visited the World Scout Bureau Global Support Centre in Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA.

 

He was kind enough to inform us about his visit and sent us the following write up and pictures which we would like to share with our fellow members and supporters.

 

"Good morning, Mr. Riverol, hope all is well. I've just finished my visit at the World Scout Bureau, Kuala Lumpur. A short summary of my visit:mary is as follows":

 

I am officially the first visitor for the year 2017, and I was welcomed into the World Scout Bureau, Kuala Lumpur, which was previously located in Geneva, Switzerland, but moved to Kuala Lumpur in 2014. The total visit lasted about 1 hour, where I spoke with a Peruvian officer, who told me all about the office, and it's history as the World Scout Bureau, and about Scouting across the globe.

 

 

 

I also met the Executive Director, Mr. Srinath Tirumale, from India, who works in the Office of the Secretary General. Officially, I was recorded in the Bureau's log, and as the first Belizean visitor (of which they hoped more will follow).

I also got a chance to see (the previously unheard of) Bronze Wolf award, which is only given to persons who give significant contribution to the World Scout Movement, with Lord Baden-Powell being the first, and in the 100 years of Scouting, only 350 of the award has been given across the globe.”I am officially the first visitor for the year 2017, and I was welcomed into the World Scout Bureau, Kuala Lumpur, which was previously located in Geneva Switzerland, but moved to Kuala Lumpur in 2014.
