West Java PRAMUKA Badge

West Java Pramuka Scout Badge

The Indonesian Scout Organization is called Gerakan Pramuka. Pramuka is the abbreviation of "praja muda karana" that means "young people willing to work". The photo above shows a west java PRAMUKA badge of my daughter's scout uniform, which indicates that she is from one of the West Java headquarters. Jawa Barat means West Java in Indonesia. I would love to tell you more about this, but my scouting days are long over.


Thanks for hosting, Drowsey

That is quite a badge. It looks colorful and bright - the style that your child wears with obvious pride. A wonderful organization, for absolute sure!

Yay for your daughter! I'm sure she will learn wonderful life values from being a scout.

This is similar to groups we have here (the boy scouts and girl scouts) only now many of the girl scout groups are so commercialized all they care about is selling girl scout cookies (they are quite famous)that they have lost the idea of helping and doing service although the boy scouts still live by their original motto's.
It is great your daughter can be a part of a group that advocates human kindness and service from that kindness it will leave a positive mark on her in the future I am sure!

Hmmm...young people willing to work. Can you send some of that enthusiasm over here to Connecticut?

This is an interesting post, thanks for sharing. And Happy Ruby Tuesday ~

Thank you for teaching us something about Indonesia Rosidah. I would like to learn slowly Indonesian language. Now I have something to come back for and copy those words in my notepad.

Happy Scouting to the kids.
