Why give to SCOUTS South Africa?

Look no further! You have found a charity that will tick all your CSI boxes. For over 100 years, SCOUTS SA has been enthralling and educating thousands of children on a weekly basis. Our programmes strive to keep youth out of crime and away from abuse, by exposing them to value based outdoor activities that allow them to prosper.

For decades the South African Scouting programmes have shaped the lives and unleashed the potential of thousands of boys and girls and young men and women. Today, with over 190 000 members, Scouting still sets the bar when it comes to contemporary value based youth programmes. Skills such as outdoor survival, first aid, citizenship, leadership as well as team work set members up for success.

With 94% of our membership residing in rural and disadvantaged areas SCOUTS South Africa has a Level 1 BEE accreditation.
