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.

Volcano Alert at ISCR: The Scout School opening!

 Today was the first day of scout school! The weather forecast showed some rain coming up, but we got lucky, and it just stayed a bit cloudy. Just to be prepared, we put up some tents to host different stations and games for the children. There were several to check out:

First, we had an information tent about the Rustavi Scouts where you could read their chronic and check out the official shirt and some patches.

The second tent held some Science experiments: We, the volunteers prepared some cardboard volcanos which would break out with the help of some vinegar and baking soda.

Third, Anna prepared a drawing game, where you could create some funny and weird monsters by only drawing ahead and let somebody else draw the body. The result could be a mix like a human-headed, robot body, mermaid!

In the scout school building, Katrina prepared the „Who am I?“ game. Everyone got a sticky note on his head with a profession written on it. By asking simple yes/no questions you would need to find out what you are. Also, there were some snacks and drinks to get back some energy. In the main building

Anton hosted a german scout game where you would need to pull a rope against another but stay in your field and not lose your balance. There were a lot of kids from first to fourth grade and we look forward to meeting them again in the next weeks!
