Botswana Takes Scouting to Schools as it Seeks to Grow Membership
Botswana Scouts Association has embarked on a process of expanding Scouting in schools and registering new Scouts to meet its growth target commitments. 11 February 2019 saw the welcoming of over 400 new Scouts at Believers Destiny Academy in Mogoditsane with the school committing to have each pupil and staff joining the movement.
This was at an event during which the school received a donation of 10 computers and 10 boxes of books. Delivered by the Regional Director Mr. Frederic Kama-Kama who during his visit to Botswana to foster partnership with stakeholders particularly Southern African Development Community (SADC) the donation will go a long way in supporting teaching and learning in the community school.
The Chairperson of the Southern Africa Zone, Mr. Ezekiel Malenya who accompanied the Regional Director noted that among other things the Scout programme seeks to empower youth through education and action on the Sustainable Development Goals in order to create more opportunities and enable them to contribute to making the world a better place.
