Dear colleagues in Scouting and friends of Scouting, it t is with great pleasure that we present this Annual Report 2009-2010 for the Africa Scout Region. 2009-2010 witnessed many highlights and achievements that kept Scouting’s torch burning bright throughout the continent. The most notable of these, of course, was the 13th World Scout Moot that took place in July-August 2010. Ably hosted by the Kenya Scouts Association and admirably supported by the World Scout Bureau’s Central Office and Africa Regional Office, this marked the first time ever that a WOSM-level youth event was held on African soil.
By and large, this report is an account of highlights in the Scout fraternity in Africa. In particular, it presents the work and accomplishments of the Africa Regional Office from 2009 to 2010. Some of the initiatives are ongoing or in the process of development and therefore will receive attention in future reports as well.
