The mission of the Africa Scout Foundation is to promote the growth of Scouting and support more young people in Africa to gain knowledge, develop skills and attitudes through quality educational programmes towards creating a better world by continuous accumulation of capital fund. These funds are raised through donations, grants, membership contributions and other legal methods of fundraising. The Foundation also seeks noncapital donations to support specific Scouting projects. This is with a vision of "ensuring a future for Scouting in Africa
The new website which was unveiled at an event held at the World Scout Bureau Africa Support Centre in Nairobi is part of the efforts to enhance visibility and promotion of the Foundation to drive growth of its financial base. Through it, we hope that many more people will be are to better understand the role of the foundation and support its cause of ensuring a future for Scouting in Africa.
The significance of the launch was raised as it coincided with the commemoration of the Africa Youth Day, marked on 1st November every year - where there were calls to invest in Africa’s youth.
We invite you to visit the website and learn more about how you can support the development of young people in Africa, through Scouting. The website was developed with support from Legibra Solutions - a kenyan creative studio.
“The values of the Scout Movement and let us also not forget the Girl Guides, are what we need for the youth everywhere. I am saying so because they are holistic. They do not deal with just one or another aspect of our living situation. The Scout ethos reaches far into the individual and at the centre of the discipline it inculcates is the desire to sacrifice, to provide for, and to live for other human beings.”
