Founder's Day - Africa Scout Region

24th Jan 2014

This is the day we celebrate our Founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, as it also coincides with his birthday.
This special day is also referred to as World Thinking Day, as it is the occasion for Scouts and Guides around the world to acknowledge our fellow brother and sister Scouts and Guides and to remember the Promise that every Scout and Guide have taken.

For the Africa Scout Region, the proposed theme for this year Founder’s Day is “In the footsteps of Baden Powell, Scouts leave a lasting mark in their communities”. This is in line with our strategic goal for 2012-2015 triennium, namely: “To achieve efficient, effective and sustainable Scouting in Africa”.

Therefore, we are calling upon all scouts and scouters to display a scouting spirit on this day, by carrying out special activities, individually or collectively, as per the attached guidelines.
