Scouting at Shamsa Village

PARSA’s Afghan Scouts paid a visit to the kids in Shamsa Village Orphanage this past Friday to play games, teach some basic medical protocol, and  have fun learning to tie Scouting knots. Shamsa will be sending a staff member to PARSA’s Basic Scout Master Training this month so that they can start their own Cub Scout Troop in June with all of the Shamsa children, and with the support of PARSA Scouts staff.

Shamsa Village is also special to us as they will be opening their doors for some of the Badakhshan children that were orphaned/displaced in the Argo landslide. PARSA will fully support Shamsa in this endeavor.

Enjoy the below slideshow of pictures taken by Reese Hume during his visit with the Scouts at Shamsa:
