postheadericon Palestinian Scout Group Seeks Funds To Add A Second Floor To Its Scout House.

ANT-Hiroshima has a wide network of contacts all over the world. One of our contacts in Palestine contacted ANT-Hiroshima to tell us about a scout group situated in the village of Beit Jala which is trying to raise funds to add a second floor to its scout house.

Here's a video of the scout troop parading, Christmas 2009.

It’s really great and amazing to see teens and children together in different activities. The spite the lack in many things they survive and continue. While small kids learn and gain self reliance, courage, and self actualization, communication skills, the big ones (young leaders) are enriched and empowered due to the volunteering activities that they arrange inside their community and be a model of giving, community support and (I hope) they will be the future leaders of Palestine.

What is ANT-Hiroshima?

Asian Network of Trust-Hiroshima, an NGO based in Hiroshima, Japan, draws its inspiration from the experience of the A-bomb survivors who, together with international support, worked to rebuild their shattered city in a spirit of peace and reconciliation. In a similar spirit, ANT-Hiroshima is involved in a range of relief, reconstruction, and peace-building projects in a number of countries, including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

ANT-Hiroshima’s work is rooted in the twin missions of providing material, as well as emotional, support to the people we serve. We bring a human touch to the provision of emergency relief in areas devastated by natural disaster or human conflict. Operating on a small scale at the local level, we share a spirit of warmth and compassion along with such immediate material needs as food, clothing, water, shelter, and medical supplies and services.

In Japan, too, our work is inspired by the spirit of Hiroshima in our efforts to motivate the next generation of Japanese to view the world with compassionate eyes. Through programs in education, we strive to stimulate the awareness and action of young people towards both the material and emotional needs of their local communities as well as the international community.
