This is the official Kawan Leader's Manual of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.
“Dear Kawan Leader... Welcome to the Kawan!
“You are joining a team of people who are generously sharing their thoughts, effort, enthusiasm, and time to help boys become men of good character — doing their share to strengthen the family, improve society, and build the country. As you embark on this role let your first aim be to make every boy in your Kawan happy as an individual, as a member of his family, as a member of his Color Group and Kawan, and as a member of Community. For boys are naturally happy creatures and, therefore, happiness is the key word to successful KAB Scouting.”
