BZ – Belize Scouts will have new instruments for a steel band courtesy of the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) which donated $50,000 to the Belize Scouts Association and Foundation on April 27, according to Love FM.
The donation was presented by the Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) David Kuan-Chou Chien to the Scout Association of Belize President Fernando Oliva.
The donation was presented at the Sir Colville N. Young Building, the new Scouting home, named after the Governor-General of Belize.
Scout president Oliva said the instruments have long been a dream.
“It was our long last dream to have a band in scouting and over the years the Governor General has donated several instruments but this is the first time that we have gotten a donation of this significant amount,” Oliva said. “So, we are eager for our scouts to live and express themselves through music.”
Taiwan Ambassador Chien said young people are the future.
