In accordance with the goal of “cultivating talents through education” as advocated by the founder of Fo

Scouts) were gradually established since 1996 in many parts of the world. The BLIA Scouts set its core goal
as “Do good deeds, Speak good words, Think good thoughts“, advocating education and character cultivation
in life, thus establishing a harmonized social atmosphere. In addition, BLIA Scouts provides a platform for
children to develop teamwork, potential skills, and creativity, so they can live a joyful life that filled with
three good acts.
