Lalam, The Girl Scout is much more than a story about scouting. It follows the life of an 11-year-old girl called Lalam. After floods destroy her home, they go to a Resettlement Camp where she meets a new friend from Korea called Ms. Lee Kim. Her new friend gives her a gift of a book about scouting which transforms her life, school and community. Using scouting as a vehicle, this story shows how Lalam and her fellow scouts are empowered with social skills of communication, leadership, participation and public information; as well as cognitive skills like critical, analytical, reflective and strategic thinking. Through the training, interaction and exposure they receive as scouts, Lalam and her colleagues acquire knowledge and understanding of diversity, globalization, equality as well as values and attitudes including self-esteem, empathy and respect, social justice and equality which prepare them to an exemplary life as informed and empowered global citizens who play an active and positive role in their societies.
