After the earthquake in 2014, there has been a number of filed cases girls being altered to the violence especially living in open areas and in the temporary tents. This Stop the Violence – project focuses on raising awareness on the situation and encouraging scouts to take a stand against it by training scout leaders and teachers on what to do and alternatives for reacting it. After the training and peer support the scout leaders and teachers are more aware and can act if they suspect on of their scouters or student is being/has been violated. In the last phase of the project, the trained leaders and teachers will organize Stop The Violence awareness programme for their district about children’s rights & safety education.

Messengers of Peace is a World Scout Committee initiative designed to promote and recognize service projects that contribute to world peace.
The goal of Messengers of Peace is to inspire millions of young men and women throughout the world to work closer toward achieving peace. Using state-of-the-art social media, the initiative lets Scouts from around the world share what they’ve done and inspire fellow Scouts to undertake similar efforts in their own communities. The result will be a mosaic of stories, data, and results showing the impact of the Scout movement—a tool for recruiting members, assuring parents, inspiring donors, and making existing members proud to be Scouts.
The initiative is inspired by the World Scout Committee, administered by the World Scout Bureau, and driven by youth volunteers worldwide. Participation by the Boy Scouts of America is being coordinated by the International Department and a team led by Peter E. Hyman.
The initiative stems from the 10-year-old Gifts for Peace program, which has inspired over 10 million Scouts in 110 countries to work toward peace in their local communities. After hearing about this work, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia noted that “Scouts are the messengers of peace.” He and King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, honorary chair of the World Scout Foundation, formally launched the Messengers of Peace initiative in September 2011.
Likewise, Nepal Scouts plan to continue undertaking all the YESS Activities beyond the funded period.
