One of the chief goals of the centre is to provide scouts in Rustavi with facilities for their indoor and outdoor activities as well as a permanent office to deal with all administrative matters of the organization. The buildings are designed for this purpose. The centre is also available to other youth groups in Georgia, e.g. from the capital Tbilisi, and as a location for special events (training courses, seminars, planning weekends, etc.) In addition, the International Scout Centre Rustavi generates income by renting its facilities to third parties: The centre can be used by school and university groups as well as non-governmental organizations looking for a venue for residential study weeks and meeting. The centre offers overnight accommodations for tourists, groups and individuals.

Time to say goodbye to Jona

Our ESC volunteer Jona unfortunately had to say goodbye to us this week. He was great support for the Scout Centre. We look back with pleasure on the projects in which he actively supported the ISCR.

But before he left, we just wanted to ask him about his experience here in ISCR! How were the 7.5 months that Jona spent in Rustavi?
Jona told us that his best experiences were those he had while working in the youth exchange projects, where he could meet so many people from different countries. He also enjoyed the work and activities with the children in the ISCR.

He will miss his new friends the most: the wonderful people from the Scout Centre, all the open-hearted people from Rustavi, and the other volunteers who have also become friends during that time.

He will also miss the open and spontaneous nature of Georgians now that he is back in Germany.

We wish Jona to have fun and success in his new ways in Germany. We wish him all the best for his studies in Energy Science, which Jona will start in October.

We will miss you, Jona!
