1st Bulletin of the 17th Africa Scout Conference and 8th Africa Scout Youth Forum
Dear Scouts around the world,
We are pleased to share with you the first edition of the newsletter of the 17th Africa Scout Conference & 8th Africa Scout Youth Forum, christened "HUNGWE".
The “Hungwe” (African sh eagle in Shona language) is a large species of eagle found throughout sub-Saharan Africa wherever large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply occur. The bird is
the national bird of Zimbabwe and appears on the Zimbabwean flag. This bird of prey also figures in the coat of arms of Namibia, Zambia, and South Sudan, and the Zambian flag. It is strong and powerful. Its distinctive cry is, for many, evocative of the spirit or essence of Africa. What better name to call this bulletin than “Hungwe”?
Just as the Hungwe cries, this bulletin will serve to call out for you important information that you will need as you prepare to travel to Zimbabwe for the 17th Africa Scout Conference and the 8th Africa Scout Youth Forum.
