Development of the Movement
The late HM the King Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah Deva established the Nepal Scouts and Guides Association in 1952. In 1959, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Birendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev was appointed and invested as Chief Scout by His Majesty King Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev at the Royal Palace. Since then, celebrating Scout Day at the Royal Palace has become a tradition. On the same day, the Chief Scout inaugurated the National Headquarters of the Nepal Scouts and Guides. In 1965, the name of the Association was changed to Nepal Boy and Girl Scouts Association. From then onwards the Girl Guides were known as Girl Scouts. In 1975 the name was further changed to the Nepal Scouts.
After the declaration of Republic of Nepal, amended constitution of Nepal Scouts defined the provision of Patron to Primer Minister and Chief Scouts to Youth and Sports Minister.
A five-year development plan was first introduced in 1975, and the first National Jamboree was held in 1987 with the theme ‘Let‘s make the world beautiful’.
Rallies and community-centred social service by Nepal Scouts are organized jointly by Scouts and Guides. Leadership training, camping, District Camporees, and other relevant aspects of the youth programme are held separately by the national development service, as required under the education system of the country.
Currently, in the Nepal Scouts, the departmental head of the Girls Section is Joint Chief Commissioner. Below this, there is an International Commissioner (Girls), Training Commissioner (Girls), National Organizing Commissioner (Girls), National Programme Commissioner, National PR Commissioner, and other office personnel.
