Penang Cheshire Agoonoree
The first Penang Cheshire Agoonoree was inspired by Veronica Pau, who attended the “APR Workshop on Working with Youth with Special Needs” in 2006. The Agoonoree has become an annual event organised by the Penang Cheshire Home. Besides the participation from the Special Scouts in State of Penang, it was initially extended to include Special Scouts from the Northern Region. Due to the high cost of organising this agoonoree, now the participation is only open to Special Scouts in Penang. Since 2008, the Agoonoree hasn’t been held in the Penang State itself but also included camping in other states to widen their knowledge and for them to gain experience. The main goals of the Penang Cheshire Agoonoree are:
- Develop people with special needs to physically, spiritual and mentally to give them a constructive role in society
- Give those with special needs an opportunity to participate in the Scouting Movement
- Encourage people with special needs to socialize
