International Projects Team launched
At the World Committee (WCom) meeting in March 2009, the WCom decided to form a team to maintain a register of the International Projects that our ISGF and its members are undertaking around the world, giving all ISGF members and other interested parties the opportunity to contribute to them as well.
We are actioning this for two reasons.
Firstly, as our membership is so wide and diverse there is a greater freedom of choice to support a Project that takes their personal preference. As we know, young people these days like to have a greater choice on how they contribute to the world.
Secondly, the WCom have been charged with promoting the ISGF to find new members as well as supporting WOSM and WAGGGS. By establishing this register we will show how and where our members and supporters funds are being spent. A more open traceability of funds will also show WOSM and WAGGGS that we are actively supporting our youth. This openness we believe will attract new members.
Share your initiatives how you as an individual or your Fellowship supported citizens, communities, health services during the coronavirus pandemic. We will publish with a series of initiatives, which we hope will make a small difference. Also, tell us the way you are communicating with your members via extra Newsletters or video calls etc.
Throughout our history, members of ISGF have helped other people and supported their communities in times of crisis. However, we know that everyone’s situation is different, and we all have different responsibilities and restrictions from our governments.
Be on the lookout for requests to help from other organisations and if it is safe for you to volunteer, please consider doing so. Share your stories so we can show how you are helping, and others may just read of this and ask for your help too. We will make a summary of the work each member or NSGF/CB have been doing.
