Celebrating Scout's Impact in Africa

Amidst the vibrant setting of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) – now the African Union (AU) – meeting in Addis Ababa, a momentous decision was made: to establish the 13th of March as Africa Scout Day. This significant day serves as a testament to the remarkable achievements of Scouting across the African continent.

This year, the Africa Scout Region has meticulously planned activities to commemorate this special occasion, set to unfold from the 13th to the 17th of March in the picturesque city of Bujumbura, Burundi. Under the theme "Embrace, Engage, Elevate," scouts from diverse backgrounds will come together to celebrate the spirit of scouting and its transformative impact on African communities.

In Nigeria, scouts have been entrusted with the noble task of carrying out social support activities in their respective communities, embodying the essence of service and camaraderie that defines the scouting movement. As representatives of The Scout Association of Nigeria, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to the Africa Scout Committee Leadership, led by the esteemed Mr. Maina Kiranga, and the World Organization of The Scout Movement Director for Africa, Dr. Frederic Tutu Kama-Kama. We also salute the Chief Commissioners, leaders, and scouts of our various National Scout Organizations for their dedication and commitment to the ideals of scouting.

On this momentous occasion of African Scouting, let us continue to uphold the values of scouting as we work tirelessly to mold the next generation of leaders and changemakers. With unity, determination, and a spirit of "Good Hunting," we embark on this journey of celebration and reflection, inspired by the profound impact of scouting on the African continent.

Benefits & Impact

The Africa Scout Day celebrations serve as a poignant reminder of the positive impact of scouting in Africa.

This annual event not only celebrates the achievements of scouting but also highlights its vital role in shaping the future leaders of Africa, instilling values of service, camaraderie, and empowerment.
