Cabinet to spend Ft 500mn on scouts

The cabinet is spending Ft 500 million for renovating three boy scout houses, Népszava reports.

Human Resources Ministry under-secretary for youth policy Boglárka Illés said scouts are not constantly on the internet like the other young people of today.

Hungarian Scouts Federation head József Pótor said the movement is Hungary’s largest youth organisation with 12,000 active members among more than 50 million scouts around the world.

Run-down scouts’ buildings will be renovated in Miskolc and Kecskemét and an accommodation building will be renovated in Nagykovácsi.
