The Africa Scout Foundation Board has the pleasure to invite you to its virtual Silver Jubilee Celebrations that will take place on Saturday, 12 December 2020 from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm (GMT+3) under the theme “Positioning Scouting in Africa for Sustainability” with at least 500 participants expected to attend.
Established through a resolution of the 9th Africa Scout Conference held in Uganda in 1995, 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 to provide Africa Scout Region with the 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.
To mark its Silver Jubilee, the Africa Scout Foundation will host a virtual celebration to share some of the impact stories of the Scout projects across Africa, showcase youth-led grassroots projects, celebrate the members of the foundations as well as inspire continuous support for Scouting in Africa through membership to the foundation and support of key regional projects and initiatives.
