Background


The Africa Scout Foundation is an international non-profit organization registered under the Kenya Societies Act, Certificate no. 19668 of 11th February 2000. It was established in 1995 to provide Africa Scout Region with financial support needed for the growth and development of Scouting. This was out of the realization that, Scouting in Africa, if well supported financially, will help more young Africans to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to be responsible, self-reliant citizens and dependable leaders of the future.

Our Mission


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.
