PERESMIAN KANTOR BARU WORLD SCOUT BUREAU, KUALA LUMPUR

PERESMIAN KANTOR BARU WORLD SCOUT BUREAU, KUALA LUMPUR

PERESMIAN KANTOR BARU WORLD SCOUT BUREAU, KUALA LUMPUR
Pembukaan kantor baru World Scout Bureau (WSB), yang merupakan pusat pengelolaan kegiatan Organisasi Gerakan Pramuka se Dunia atau World Organization of Scout Movement (WOSM), di Kuala Lumpur dilaksanakan pada 18 Juni 2014, oleh Perdana Menteri Malaysia Dato' Sri Mohd. Najib bin Tun Abd. Razak.

Pada peresmian ini Gerakan Pramuka dihadiri oleh Kak Kodrat Pramudho, Waka Kwarnas Bidang Organisasi dan Hukum mewakili Ketua Kwarnas Gerakan Pramuka, Kak Indo Reyano Samili, Andalan Nasional Gerakan Pramuka Hubungan Luar Negeri bersama 2 orang anggota APR Sub-Committee dari Gerakan Pramuka, yaitu Kak Brata Tryana Harjosubro (Vice Chairman, Asia-Pacific Regional Scouting Profile Sub-Committee) dan dan Kak Susi Yuliati Madjid (Member , Asia-Pacific Regional Finance Sub-Committee).
Kantor WOSM yang sebelumnya kantor berlokasi di Geneva, Swiss. Relokasi kantor WSB dari Geneva ke Kuala Lumpur ini menandai sejarah baru perkembangan Gerakan Pramuka (Scout Movement) se Dunia, yang sebelumnya sempat menuai kritikan karena biaya operasi kantor yang tinggi di Swiss, serta lokasinya sangat jauh dari negara-negara anggota atau NSO (National Scout Organisation) yang memiliki jumlah anggota terbanyak di dunia, seperti Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Filipina dan Thailand. Kantor WOSM memiliki kapasitas untuk tempat 30 anggota staf dari beberapa negara, yang akan mendukung 162 Organisasi se-Dunia yang merupakan anggota WOSM.
Dari sekitar 40 juta anggota WOSM, hampir 80 % berasal dari regional Asia-Pasifik. Gerakan Pramuka Indonesia adalah yang terbanyak anggotanya, hampir 20 juta. Dengan relokasi kantor WSB dari Eropa ke Asia ini diharapkan kebijakan Gerakan Pramuka (Scout Movement) se- Dunia akan lebih didasarkan pada pemahaman terhadap kondisi dan kebutuhan nyata dari NSO-NSO yang memiliki banyak anggota dan otomatis membayar iuran anggota lebih besar, karena iuran WOSM dihitung berdasarkan jumlah anggota.
Dengan adanya kantor baru di Kuala Lumpur, jaringan komunikasi global kantor WSB semakin diperluas untuk 8 lokasi di seluruh dunia yaitu - Brussels, Kairo, Jenewa, Kiev, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Nairobi dan Panama City , sehingga hubungan WSB menjadi lebih dekat dengan negara-negara anggota atau NSO.
Dalam Sambutannya Sekjen WOSM, Scott Teare mangatakan "Gerakan Pramuka adalah gerakan berbasis relawan dan relawan adalah sumber dari organisasi, kita perlu lebih banyak orang untuk meningkatkannya, terutama relawan anggota dewasa untuk memastikan bahwa organisasi kepramukaan ini tumbuh terus ,dari 40 juta anggota hari ini diharapkan bertambah menjadi lebih dari 100 juta anggota dalam waktu 10 tahun ke depan, "kata Teare.

Over a 1000 Scouts welcome B-P Fellows to Japan

Over a 1000 Scouts welcome B-P Fellows to Japan

Over a 1000 Scouts welcome B-P Fellows to Japan
Over a 1000 Scouts welcome B-P Fellows to JapanThe 67th Baden-Powell World Fellowship Event took place from 26th to 30th November 2013 in Kyoto, Japan. The B-P Fellowship Chapter of Japan planned the entire event under the leadership of World Scout Foundation Board member Mr. Masaya Arao to a massive success.
The Honorary Chairman of the World Scout Foundation, His Majesty the King of Sweden, Chairman Siegfried Weiser and Director John Geoghegan, make an incredible team for the Foundation in their efforts to raise significant resources to support World Scouting. They have been doing this by permanently investing capital donations from interested parties that want to help young people learn positive values and become our leaders of tomorrow.
The Foundation also seeks non-capital donations to support specific World Scouting projects, such as the Messengers of Peace program. The need has never been more urgent, and the potential rewards have never been greater, for Scouting to help instil the values that are so essential to the future of our global community.
Prior to attending the events in Kyoto, His Majesty and several B-P Fellows attended a mini B-P event (25th and 26th November) in Hong Kong, following the highly successful 1st World Scout Education Congress. The B-P Fellowship Chapter of Hong Kong raised over 700,000 USD through new B-P Fellowship members and upgrades of existing members. I want to congratulate the excellent work of our Hong Kong B-P Fellowship Chapter in ensuring this great success.
In Japan, 135 B-P Fellows and partners attended the Event. His Majesty, the King of Sweden and Her Imperial Highness The Princess Takamado of Japan added a royal touch to the activities.
The Mayor of the City of Kyoto hosted a welcome reception on 27th November. The meeting of the World Scout Foundation Board took place on the 28th November. On the 29th, His Majesty the King of Sweden also participated in a seminar on Youth Leadership, which was specially organised by Japanese Rover Scouts.
During the Fellowship Dinner on the 29th of November, the World Scout Foundation welcomed 24 new B-P Fellows, 23 new members of the Benefactor Circle, 5 new members of the International Circle and 1 new Regal Circle member, contributing to a very successful event.
The dinner was attended by 465 participants and the guest of honour was Her Imperial Highness The Princess Takamado.
During the Event, top Japanese businessman, Mr. Atushi Horiba, Chairman, President and CEO of the Horiba Group (43 companies in 22 countries) and Mr Genshitus Sen (15th Grand Master of the Tea Ceremony) came to meet the Honorary Chairman. They discussed youth leadership development in relation to business and Scouting, including how Mr. Horiba and Mr. Sen could support those efforts.
There were several cultural programs included in the event schedule – visits to the Imperial Palace, Imperial Villas, Temples, Shrines (all part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site) and local market areas.
On the last day, 30th November 2013, all B-P Fellows attended a Scout Rally with over 300 Cub Scouts and 700 Scouts and Rover Scouts. That afternoon, over 130 local Scout Leaders participated in a seminar on International Scouting organized as part of the conclusion of the B-P Event. Lars Kolind (World Scout Foundation Board Member) and Scott Teare (Secretary General, WOSM) were the keynote speakers.
As the Secretary General of WOSM, it was a pleasure for me to be part of the B-P Events and the Foundation’s Board meeting in Japan. I am delighted to continue the work of strengthening the relations between WOSM and the World Scout Foundation, who remain our long-term and highly appreciated financial supporter.

Peace for All, Kenyans for Peace
Extreme violence following the previous national elections in Kenya (2007) saw over a 1000 people killed and hundreds of thousands left homeless and displaced. For several days, the premises of World Scout Bureau Africa Regional Office had turned into a refugee camp with slum dwellers scampering for safety in fear of their lives. This time around, the Scouts have done their best through Messengers of Peace to ensure a safe build up to the elections.
Ghana Scouts help curb election violence and promote peace
For the last ten years Ghana has been successful in conducting peaceful elections but conflicts arising in the last one year have created instability in some regions putting at risk the good work of many years. Ghana is widely regarded as one of the most promising countries in Africa and has been in the list of fastest growing economies in the continent for several years now. The Ghana Scout Association undertook a Messengers of Peace project to educate young people in peace and leadership, and to promote active citizenship of the youth to prevent violence. Ghana Scouts also brought together several other youth organisations to join hands with the Scouts in spreading the message of peace in the community.
Laura Powe, Peserta ISPC Dari Australia Nikmati Kegiatan village Trekking

Laura Powe, Peserta ISPC Dari Australia Nikmati Kegiatan village Trekking


Laura Powe, Peserta ISPC Dari Australia Nikmati Kegiatan village TrekkingSemangat pagi masih menghangatkan seluruh peserta. Di pagi yang cerah ini, kelompok kecil peserta akan melakukan village trekking. Kegiatan mengelilingi desa dan transit di beberapa pos. Setiap pos yang disinggahi terdapat games menarik yang dapat dieksplore oleh peserta. Perjalanan dimulai melalui jalan setapak di tepi pematang sawah. Di tengah udara dingin pagi, sinar mentari memancar dari balik pegunungan, memancarkan keindahan tanah Pasundan.

Laura Powe mahasiswa dari Studied architecture at Brisbane University, Australia menikmati suasana pagi. Jalan setapak kini telah berganti menjadi hutan jambu biji. Peserta diizinkan untuk memetik jambu biji yang menguntai rendah ke bumi. Laura, begitu sapaan akrab pramuka asal australia ini, memetik dan menikmati langsung buah tersebut dari pohon. Sambil menikmati Jambu Biji, peserta pun akhirnya tiba di sebuah tanah lapang.

Di lapangan ini, telah tersedia beragam alat permainan tradisional seperti Enggrang dan Gatrik. Kedua alat permainan tradisional ini terbuat dari bambu. Laura pun mencoba. Ia menaiki enggrang. Satu, dua kali dia mencoba berjalan dengan enggrang, namun gagal dan terjatuh. Tak pantang menyerah, Laura terus mencoba hingga mampu melangkah dengan Enggrang. Laura kemudian mencoba bermain gatrik. Bersama teman satu team homestaynya dari Kalimantan Barat, Komalasari, Laura bermain Gatrik. Mereka secara bergantian memukul dan menangkap bambu yang dipukul. Serta menggendong satu sama lain, jika mereka menjadi pihak yang kalah dalam permainan. “it’s so fun” kata Laura.

Perjalanan pun dilanjutkan hingga tiba di tempat membajak sawah. Tampak beberapa petani dengan seekor kerbau telah menanti kedatangan peserta. Peserta ditantang keberaniannya untuk mencoba mengendarai alat bajak sawah yang ditarik kerbau. Laura pun memberanikan diri mencobanya. Sedikit gemetar, Laura turun ke dalam sawah yang penuh lumpur. Dibimbing para petani, Laura menaiki alat bajak dan kerbau pun mulai berjalan. Laura tampak senang dan menikmati pengalaman pertamanya ini.

Setelah itu, perjalanan dilanjutkan. Melewati beberapa rumah warga, Laura tampak memotret benda-benda yang dianggapnya menarik. Kandang ayam, Rumah-rumah, kolam ikan hingga anak-anak itik menjadi sasaran kameranya. Mahasiswi jurusan arsitektur dari Brisbane University ini mengaku sangat tertarik dengan seni rumah di Indonesia. “I’m intersesting with roof like buffalo corn in main camp” jelas Laura. (MA)

The International Scout Peace Camp (ISPC) opened in fanfare, reinforced with the dancing of hundreds of participants and guests attending the opening ceremony at the Cibubur Scout Camping Ground, east of Jakarta, on 25th March 2013. The peace camp is one of the Messengers of Peace initiatives and the first of its kind held in Indonesia.
The camp for Rovers and Senior Rovers (18 to 25 years old) will run until 31st March, and is attended by over 500 participants, out of which 150 come from different countries and regions in the world, including Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Belarus, Cambodia, Scouts of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Madagascar, Malaysia, Maldives, Moldova, Macau, Mexico, Oman, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, and for local participants 31 out of 33 provinces in Indonesia attended.

Under the banner of “Scouting Builds Peace”, the atmosphere of peace, friendship and fun were evident that while a Rover sang the camp theme song at the opening, participants and guests joined him in the fun with the entire World Scout Committee and Asia-Pacific Regional Scout Committee members headed by WSC Chairman Simon Hang Bock Rhee and Regional Chairman Dr Chao Shou-Po. Also, joining the fun were WOSM Secretary General Mr. Scott Teare, Regional Director Abdullah Rasheed and RSC member and Gerakan Pramuka (GP) Chairman Prof. Dr. Azrul Azwar.
Friendship and fun evident in International Scout Peace Camp
Chairman Azwar and WSC Chairman Simon congratulated the participants and both urged them to live up the Scouting spirit and spread the message of peace and love, whether at home, in the community, in colleges or anywhere else. Simon congratulated GP for being the largest national Scout organization and for hosting this international peace camp.

GP Chairman Azwar opened the camp and said that it was a great honour for GP to host another international Scouting activity. He hoped that through the camp, participants will get to know each other more that fosters better understanding among the participants and the local communities. All guests of honour signed in Commemorative Cover, a limited edition issued by the Indonesian Postal Service.
After a festive day in Cibubur, participants went straight to their respective sub-camps: Kampung Domba (Banten Province), Kampung Sukaratu (West Java Province), and Setu Babakan (Jakarta Province) to live with the locals for three days, to experience their way of life and to do community service that will mark their stay.
The members of the WSC and RSC were invited for a luncheon hosted in Jakarta by the Governor of DKI Jakarta Province Joko Widodo and Vice-Governor Basuki Tjahja Purnama -- a rare occasion to see in Indonesia when in one event, both the Governor and the Vice Governor welcomed the guests. The Vice-Governor, in his welcome remarks at the Governor’s Office, emphasized the value of Scouting and give credit to it in building up their young people.

Another Scout Movie opens in Jakarta

The film "Hasduk Berpola" (Patterned Neckerchief) talks about the love within the family and how that love can make you sacrifice to support one’s dream.
Hasduk Berpola
The 100-minute film started by unfolding the life of Masnun, a veteran ex-fighter during Indonesia’s fight for independence in 1945, and living with his widow daughter and grandchildren Budi and Bening. Although he made a significant contribution to his country, he is living in poverty. Unfazed with poverty, his grandson Budi was determined to continue being an active Scout despite not having the money to buy the Scout supplies he needed for activities.
Bening, seeing his brother’s passion for Scouting, along with his struggle, she decided to give up her favorite bed linens to make a Scout neckerchief for her brother. Love and friendship the siblings have for each other allowed that Scouting dream of Budi to continue.
Another Scout Movie opens in Jakarta
During the visit of World Scout Foundation Executive Director John Geoghegan in Indonesia last year, he saw the official trailer of the movie and gave the trailer a “thumbs up.” John said the film speaks about Scouting spirit to never give up and the willingness to help at all times.
"The movie is very inspiring for young people values ​​and spirit of peace that exist in the film fits with our current program Messengers of Peace,” John said.
John asked the film director Harris Nizam to be a Messenger of Peace and even gave his MoP neckerchief. Harries said that he was pleased to be a Messenger of Peace, and felt that it was a challenge to improve more on his work in the future.
The movie premiere opened in Planet Hollywood XXI Theater in Jakarta on 19th March 2013, attended by Gerakan Pramuka and international leaders of Scouting.

Peserta ISPC Belajar Ngangon Domba

Peserta ISPC Belajar Ngangon Domba

Salah satu kegiatan di Sub Camp Kampung Domba, Pandeglang, Banten adalah belajar mengangon domba. Para peserta International Scout Peace Camp 2013 (ISPC) tampak antusias melakukan kegiatan yang mungkin langka di lingkungan mereka, apalagi peserta dari luar negeri. Mulai dari memandikan domba, mencukur bulu domba, sampai memeluk domba kecil yang sangat menggemaskan merupakan bagian yang tak terhindarkan dari kegiatan yang bertajuk mengangon domba.
Peserta ISPC Belajar Ngangon DombaJangan salah, berbeda dengan kambing, domba memiliki sifat yang lebih liar dan cenderung susah diatur. Untuk mengeluarkan dari kandangnya saja butuh tenaga yang sangat kuat. Walaupun aroma di sekitar kandang domba tidak sedap, tetapi peserta ISPC tetap semangat melakukan kegiatan ini.
Daging domba jauh lebih lezat dari pada daging kambing biasa, ujar Muhamad Djamaludin, anggota Dewan Kerja Cabang Gerakan Pramuka Pandeglang. Djamaludin yang memandu kegiatan ini mengatakan, selain dagingnya dimakan, bulu domba juga memiliki manfaat untuk bahan jaket, walau ia mengakui bahwa manfaat yang kedua ini belum dilakukan secara maksimal di Kampung Domba ini.
Muhamad Djamaludin menuturkan bahwa domba secara rutin dimandikan seminggu sekali dengan menyemprot, dan menyikatnya dengan sabun cuci. Secara rutin bulu domba dicukur tiga bulan sekali agar kelihatan bersih. Hal lain adalah domba jantan dan betina ditempatkan terpisah kecuali masa kawin, karena kalo disatukan, antara domba jantan dan betina akan bertengkar.
Dalam kegiatan mengangon domba, suasana lucu dan menggelikan terjadi. Melihat domba kecil yang imut membuat peserta ingin memegang dan memeluknya. Seperti yang dilakukan oleh salah satu peserta ISPC dari Thailan, Chanathip Eujongdee. Ia tampak sangat gemas dengan anak domba berbulu putih dan hitam tersebut. Anak domba tersebut adalah anak domba paling lucu dari yang lainnya. Chanathip menggendong dan memeluk domba tersebut dengan penuh kasih saying.
“kamu pasti kangen ibumu. Okeh..okeh.. aku akan mengantarkanmu padanya”, begitulah katanya ketika menggendong anak domba lucu tersebut.
Begitulah pengalaman mengasyikkan dari salah satu kegiatan yang paling menarik di Kampung Domba ini. Pastilah ISPC ini sangat mengesankan untuk mereka semua sebagaimana yang dikatakan oleh salah satu peserta dari Afrika Selatan, Nkuleko, “I AM LOVIN IT!”. (FH)

Harmonisasi Peserta ISPC Dengan Empunya Rumah Sangat Terkesan

Harmonisasi Peserta ISPC Dengan Empunya Rumah Sangat Terkesan


Harmonisasi Peserta ISPC Dengan Empunya Rumah Sangat TerkesanHubungan peserta Internasional Scout Peace Camp 2013 (ISPC 2013) dengan pemilik rumah tempat mereka tinggal berjalan sangat terkesan. Selama tiga hari mereka peserta ISPC terbiasa menjalankan rutinitas kehidupan masyarakat di Sub Camp Situ Babakan, Jakarta Selatan.

Mulai dari bangun tidur, mandi dan membersihkan rumah berikut halamannya dijalankan dengan baik. Bahkan mereka makan pagi (sarapan) bersama dengan keluarga baru mereka. Suasana ini membuktikan bahwa mereka mampu beradaptasi dengan kebiasaan dan budaya masyarakat setempat.

Walapun tidak mudah, tapi ternyata mereka mampu menyesuaikan diri dengan pemilik rumah dimana mereka menginap. Ada pula aktifitas positif sudah biasa mereka lakukan semenjak bangun dari tidur, seperti yang dituturkan peserta ISPC 2013 asal Jawa Timur yang biasa dipanggil alfa.

“saya lebih suka bangun pagi bahkan sebelum matahari terbit” ungkapnya  Tak hanya itu saja, kemudian ia membantu menyiapkan sarapan untuk teman-temannya yang berasal dari Maldive dan Australia.

Bahkan adapula yang bangun kesiangan di pagi ini, yah… salah satunya teman kita Johannes asal Zimbabwe, karena di malam terakhir mereka gunakan untuk saling bercanda dan bertukar cerita sesama satu kamarnya sehingga ia dan teman-temannya tidur larut malam. Namun demikian Johannes tidak mau ketinggalan dalam kegiatan pagi, karena menurutnya kegiatan di Sub Camp Setu Babakan ini begitu seru dan luar biasa. (HB)
