Rainbow Project

In March 1982, an experimental Rainbow Project was started with the establishment of Working Group and control experimental groups at the aim of accepting girl members in the Scout and Cub Scout Sections as well as the children aged below 8. On the basis of the experimental results and the recommendation of the Working Group, the Association formally introduced the Project in October 1984. A new Grasshopper Scout Section was introduced in 1985 for boys and girls aged between 6 and 8. Cub Scout Packs were allowed to admit girls if they met the stipulated requirements. But the experiment in Scout Troops was extended for one more year. photo
