ISVG Background

ISVG was formed spontaneously at the beginning of 2020 when adult scout leaders and guides from different countries and organizations who stayed at home during the Covid-19 pandemic communicated with each other on social media. 

The conversations between trained Scout Leaders from 7 countries led to the formation of ISVG; Dr. Dikpal Keshari Baidya from Canada, Dr. Vinutthaput Popet from Thailand, Mr. Raul Hernandez from the USA, Ms. Vida Kotarac from Serbia, Mr. Mounir Chaoui from Tunisia, Mr. Ashraf Osman Nsr from Egypt, and Mr. Shige Takahashi from Japan.

 

They shared their scouting knowledge and experiences with each other that later turned into regular online conferences, training on subjects of interest to scouting, and in a short time, with the participation of many different countries, the movement reached thousands of Scouters.

 

Upon the request of the participants, it was institutionalized as an international scoutmaster organization based in Toronto, Canada in January 2021.
