The Brunei Darussalam Scout Association (PPNBD) sent a Rover Scout member from the 1102 Rover Scout Crew of Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) to participate in the 9th Sharjah International Scout Gathering.

The event will be held at Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, from tomorrow to February 19.

Abdul Rahim bin Haji Ledin, who is a first-year student of UNISSA, will take part to discuss the theme of the programme ‘Scouting & Tolerance’.

The International Scout Gathering is aimed at strengthening friendships, expanding knowledge and sharing ideas and experiences among fellow scouts.

The gathering is fully funded by Member of the Supreme Council of United Arab Emirates and the Governor of Sharjah Shaik Dr Sultan bin Mohammad El-Qasemmi.

This is the 8th participation by the PPNBD, and a farewell ceremony and national flag handover was recently carried out by the Scout Chief Commissioner Haji Badar bin Haji Ali to Abdul Rahim at the PPNBD Headquarters in Jalan Gadong.
