Grupo Scout Mangore wins Volvo Adventure for 2012

Paraguay- When an outbreak of a disease claimed the lives of many innocent people, a group of young people launched a campaign to stop the source of the infection.  This team showed that life can be saved by simple action, by preventing the breeding grounds for mosquitos that transmit the infection from open water storages and solid waste.  Within five months, through an inclusive involvement of all society, they managed to significantly reduce the breeding sites and saved many lives.  See more at: http://www.volvoadventure.org/projectsFinalists.aspx?year=2012
