The Thai Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal has recruited an army of youngsters to help prevent animal cruelty, signing an agreement with the National Scout Organization of Thailand for a new “Scouts Love Animals” campaign.
TSPCA Vice President Nutchtip Banjongsil and Sajan Santad, director of scout training and personnel, signed the agreement with Suphakorn Wongprant, secretary of NSOT, and others, Sept. 12 at the Kantary Bay Hotel in Rayong, with members from both groups, along with students, scouts and advisors looking on.
The Thai Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal has signed an agreement with the National Scout Organization of Thailand for a new “Scouts Love Animals” campaign.
The agreement came after the TSPCA contacted the Ministry of Education and Office of Basic Education Committee to bolster scouting rule No. 6: “Scouts will be kind to all animals.” The agreement will allow for more teaching on animal welfare in the scouting program.
There will be animal-care seminars by experts in theory and practice, as well as speakers on animal-care education. Scouts will be able to adopt knowledge into activities that lead to real-life practices.
The hope is that better education will lead to better awareness of animal welfare, prevention of all forms of cruelty, and studies and research.
Suphakorn said the NSOT will sponsor and promote a special content course for each category of scouts, promote and sponsor setting of Scouts’ Animal Welfare units as networking to prevent cruelty to animals, sponsor and support Scouts’ Animal Welfare Club for personnel of all units with qualifications to participate in the activities, support and sponsor the scouts to progress.
