At the 41st World Scout Conference in Azerbaijan in August 2017, the World Scout Committee recognized SCOUTS South Africa’s efforts in growing the Scouting Movement in Africa. We were awarded two Growth Awards. One for achieving “Absolute Growth in Africa” and the second one for the “Increase in percentage of young people reached in Africa”.
Growth is never by mere chance,
it is the result of forces working together!
Congratulations to our Scouting volunteers as this award should be accredited to your passion, efforts and love for Scouting in South Africa. Your Cubs and Scouts benefit from your hard work, your regional and national teams see it and now the World Scout Movement has acknowledged it too. Thank you for everything you do!
