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.

A new artwork decorates the ISCR

It is slowly but surely getting a little colder in Rustavi. Every now and then the sky surprises us with rain. So it took a few attempts until we found the perfect day to hang the beautiful mosaic that former volunteers had made. It is easy to identify Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the scout movement, on the mosaic. He founded the movement more than 100 years ago.

The mosaic can now be admired by anyone interested. It is located at the back of the grey building. We had a lot of fun mixing the cement and finishing the project. It was certainly exhausting work to put all the little pieces together, but we think it was worth it!

Mosaic was made at the initiative of our Latvian volunteer Laura Zake, with the help of other ESC volunteers.
