Earth Ramming-Community Service

Bhutan Nunnery Training and Resource Center construction, Thimphu

12th July 2015

 

 

The Scouts and Culture Education Division under the Department of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Education initiated Community Service on 12th July, 2015 for construction of Bhutan Nunnery Training and Resource Center at Tshalumphey, Babesa,Thimphu.  About 78 Community Based Scouts, Scouts who have undergone Leadership Training and Scout from Thimphu volunteered.

 

The participants were divided into two mixed ability groups. One group engaged in earth ramming while other group helped transportation of stones for wall construction.  The volunteers consisted of adult and youth from different Government and Non-governmental organization, Institutes, Colleges and schools. Earth ramming was one most interesting part of the service. It was an opportunity for youth  to recall old fashion of mud house construction with unending traditional songs being sung. There was lots of excitement among participants and smiling face at the end of the day despite of very harsh weather conditions they faced.  

 

The volunteers worked tirelessly starting from 9.00 A.M to 5.00 P.M. They were provided refreshment and lunch arranged by the Department. Similar programme will be initiated by the Department in near future.
