Dimapur, March 10 (EMN): The Alpine Open Scouts and Guides unit of Kohima organised a programme on the novel coronavirus or Covid-19, among other events, for scouts and guides, and rovers and rangers of the unit on March 10 at the Botanical Garden’s premises in Kohima.

The organisers issued a press release to the media informing about the programme.

The press release stated that the scouts and guides were sensitised on the origin of the Covid-19, its symptoms, how it is spread, and what to do for its prevention. They took a pledge to spread awareness about the disease, the updates stated.

The programme was followed by another event called “Free being me,” which the organisers explained is an innovative educational programme for boys and girls of the ages five to 18 years, created by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scout in partnership with Dove Self Esteem Programme Project.

‘“Free being me” shows young people that body confidence and self esteem comes from valuing their bodies, standing up to social pressures and supporting others to become more body confident.
Participants taking part in “Free being me” learn leadership skills and feel empowered to make a difference in their local and global communities,’ the updates stated.
