Women scouts team created in Taif University


TAIF — The first batch of women scouts, 48 in number, came into being at Taif University. They paraded in front of the university President Dr. Hossam Zaman, president of the university and other university officials.

On the occasion of the formation of the scouts wing, the university launched the first tent for the introduction of the women’s Scouts movement. The members of the team offered the Scout greetings and took a pledge in front of the guests.

The university president was briefed by the members of the Scouts team about the rules and regulations of the Scouts Movement, and presented the initial skills that the team members need to acquire during the training period.

Dr. Bandar Al-Baqami, dean of students affairs at the university, stressed the importance of the role of the scouts in serving the Haj and Umrah pilgrims during the peak season of Ramadan. “This is one of the most important aspects in which the university is proud to participate effectively, as part of its religious, national and social duty,” he said while commending the women’s altruism and readiness to offer voluntary services in general and serving the pilgrims in particular. — SG/SPA
