We have become Messengers of Peace! How about you?
Two ISTs, Daniela and Deborah successfully completed a course entitled 'Developing Communication Skills in Dialogue' with an emphasis on cultural diversity in dialogue.
This course was offered at the Jamboree by the Saudi Arabian King Abdulaziz Center for National Dialogue. During the course, the participants were also visited by Prince Faisal bin Abdullah bin Mohammed, Minister of Education and Head of the Saudi Arabian Scout Association where a selected number of Young Correspondents had the opportunity to ask questions.
This course was offered as part of the Messengers of Peace initiative of which several Maltese scouts now make part of. Messengers of Peace focuses on spreading a message of peace through projects which directly benefit the community they are aimed at.
Let us hope that these new Messengers of Peace live up to their new role!
