URGENT RESPONSES REQUIRED - Arab Regional Office & United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) Scout Association, under a patronage and sponsorship of H.E. Shaik Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammad El- Qasemmi the governor of Sharjah, invite you to participate in the:  “The 5thInternational Gathering for ” Scouting & Young People with Special Needs “, which will be held during the period 4-12/2/2012, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.

The event aims to exchange experiences among participants on the role of the scout movement and its high concern with young people with disabilities and special needs and increase the awareness, knowledge & skills of the participants on how to deal with young people with special needs and integrating them into the community.

Please note: Due to a missing email, the invitation to this event was not received in Europe. We now need to act very quickly to enable as many participants to attend who wish to.
Please note that the deadline was 10 December, but it is still possible to arrange participation, if you act immediately. I suspect that 9 January 2012 would be the ultimate deadline.Sponsorship is offered for 1 male Rover Scout, aged 18 to 23 to participate, free of charge, including an economy class flight. Please not all participants must be male.

Sorry for this very tight deadline, and sorry that it has not been possible to arrange translation to French. However, we thought it better to get the information out without delay.

If you have any points of clarification, please feel free to address them to the Arab Office.

Letter from European Office, Invitation from Arab Office and Registration form.
