Plaza Robert Baden Powell, San Salvador

Plaza Robert Baden Powell, San Salvador

Robert Baden Powell's bust is located in the center of Plaza Robert Powell. It consists of two elements. One is the bust of Powell in a white hat, under which a message is engraved. At back of the busto is the second element, where is engraved a second message along with the sign of scouting and a cross. Around the bust is arranged a small wall as if protecting the whole sculpture. Powell wrote the book “Aids to Scouting” that was used in the army and in boys' schools. His ideas, convictions and advice for boys on how to become true men and patriots of their country were very important. He successfully organized camps with his friends, where boys were taught the most important information on how to become stronger. In 1910 he organized Girl Scouts, a unique movement for that time.
