Twinning between Italian and Ukrainian Scouts

MASCI, the National Scout and Guide Fellowship of Italy is committed, with other Italian scout associations, to organizing twinnings between Italian scout groups and Ukrainian scouts (PLAST). Despite the war, they managed to organize 11 twinnings for a total of about 200 Ukrainian scouts.

Although they encountered financial difficulties at the beginning of the project, they managed to cover the expenses with a nationwide fundraiser. In September they will publish in their newsletter “Strade Aperte” and on ISGF website detailed reports with photos from each campsite.
