The RCI Rodriguez Rover Circle 01 conducted its 1st YUNGA Biodiversity Camp last 26-27 January 2019 in Pililla, Rizal, Philippines.
The Youth and United Nations Global Alliance (YUNGA) is a partnership between United Nation Agencies, Civil Society Organizations and other entities which develops initiatives, resources and opportunities for Children and Young People to Learn, Get Involved and Make a Difference.
YUNGA acts as gateway for Children and the Youth to participate in educational activities and initiatives of the United Nations Youth Award (UNYA) – a global dimension having local impact to the lives of the people in the community.
This relevant undertaking is mainly supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), in cooperation with Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and our very own, the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM).
Its goal is to empower children and young people to have a greater role in society, support UN related activities, raise awareness and be active agents of change.
YUNGA and its numerous partners are working on a number of thematic areas into badge curriculum.
The badge curriculum contains activities for children and youth from 5 to 20 years of age.
The Rovers decided to achieve the YUNGA Biodiversity Challenge Badge and proudly received it after completing the requirements.
23 Rover Scouts safely went home with a new award, proudly attached on their Scout uniforms.
