Background:

 

From its establishment in 1998, Bright Future School has been working in the development of a local identity with global understanding of cultures, traditions and ways of life of the various communities we have in our world.

The First Cultural Exchange Program BFS undertook was in December 2004, when 8 students were taken for the east African Zonal Competitions in Nairobi, Kenya. Next our students participated in the 21st World Scout Jamboree, UK in 2007 and the 22nd World Scout Jamboree, Sweden in 2011 as part of the Ethiopian National Contingent.

In 2012, BFS joined a cultural exchange program organized by the Exchange Project Inc. in which 7 students took part.

In 2013, BFS was part of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Jamboree in Mount Hope, West Virginia, USA with 36 BFS Scouts taking part in this historic event.

In 2014, BFS took part in the Exchange Project’s cultural exchange Program for the second time, increasing the numbers of students to 22 from the first 7.  

Future Cultural and Scout events:

Currently BFS is preparing its students to be part of the 23rd World Scout Jamboree as members of the Ethiopian Scouts Contingent in Yamaguchi, Japan in the summer of 2015.

It also is finalizing its plan to take few of its Secondary section Students to an educational Exchange in Sweden in 2016. In addition, BFS also has a plan to send a troop of Scouts to Michigan for the Michigan State Scouts’ mini Camporee in 2016.

BFS is interested in expanding its educational, and cultural exchange programs, interested schools and organizations are more than welcome to contact us.
