Sabin Karmacharya awarded as Messengers of Peace Hero for contribution towards peace and sustainable development

This year, World Scouting recognized 25 young people for their outstanding service and contributions towards building peace and promoting sustainable development in their communities. The young leaders named Messengers of Peace Heroes in an award ceremony today under Scouting’s flagship initiative, Messengers of Peace, which has celebrated 10 years of impact around the world.

One of the Scouts being recognised this year is Mr. Sabin Krishna Karmacharya from Nepal for his efforts towards his campaign during pandamic. Activities of the Campaign includes; Free Food Campaign, Feeding Stray Animals and COVID-19 Awareness Help Desk 2021.

Held virtually this year, the award ceremony has honored the young Messengers of Peace Heroes and highlighted stories of their unique community-based projects. The award recognized the service and actions of young people across five categories related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): environment, peace-building, life skills, health and well-being, and COVID-19 response.

Among the youth-led projects being recognized were those offered urgent community relief efforts during the outbreak of COVID-19 in Tunisia, establishing education centers for underprivileged children in Colombia, empowering girls through awareness about reproductive health in Kenya, providing mental health support to young people in the United Kingdom, and working across Nepal to combat food insecurity.

Messengers of Peace connects young peace-builders together in the global network and inspires them to play a leadership role and become active citizens in their communities. Since 2010, the Messengers of Peace initiative has involved nearly all 172 National Scout Organizations and empowered Scouts to lead more than 16 million community development projects delivering over 2.5 billion hours of service towards the SDGs.

The Messengers of Peace ceremony was celebrated by many National Scout Organizations and volunteer adult leaders who have supported these Messengers of Peace Heroes on their educational and community service journey. By recognizing individuals and organizations for their contributions, World Scouting aims to inspire even more young people to become Messengers of Peace.
