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.
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.
Ensuring a Future for Scouting in Africa.
The Africa Scout Foundation has direct contact and fully cooperates with World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) through the Africa Scout Committee, having a sole objective which is to help develop Scouting in the Africa Region.
It undertakes to allocate all proceeds from income accruing from its endowment to the World Scout Bureau Africa Support Centre; although a small portion may be retained as a safeguard against inflation or devaluation of investments, or, if necessary, to cover the costs of its own operations.
