Thank you for leading the way!

two girls saluteOur Scouting founder Lord Baden Powell once said “There is no teaching to compare with example.”

Today we celebrate National Women’s Day and honour our women and girls who are changing our communities in small or enormous ways for the better.

But we also recognise our male Scouters and Patrol Leaders who – leading by example – are showing our boys and girls that gender has no bearing on being strong leaders, good citizens and self-confident, respectful, contributing, and fulfilled individuals. #SDG5 #GenderEquality

In 2000 SCOUTS South Africa opened its doors to girls. Today, 20 years later, approximately 48% of our membership are girls and women who support, develop and partake in the Scout advancement programmes, adventures and fun!
