Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

En el año 2012 Quito sufrió los más devastadores incendios forestales, Scouts fue la organización que más colaboró con voluntarios y en reforestar, esto hizo que seamos el principal aliado del Municipio y referente en restauración de áreas deforestadas, en el año 2015 con el apoyo del Ministerio del Ambiente y Nestlé se logró obtener un Récord Guinness en reforestación, actualmente nos enfocas en zonas de reservas hídricas en las ciudades de intervención, fomentando el cuidado del agua.
