Adult Leaders and young Scouts from West Africa zone will from 22nd to 27th July 2015 meet in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso for the 10th West Africa Zonal Scout Conference and Youth Forum. The theme for the event is “Scouts Serving the Community.”

National Scout Organizations of Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote D’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo are expected at the conference. Also in attendance will be the Secretary General of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, Scott Teare; who will be accompanied by the Africa Regional Director, Frederic Kama-Kama and the Director for Strategy and Education Services, Christophe Sanon.

The President of the Republic of Burkina Faso, H. E. Michel Kafando will also grace the occasion. The Ambassador of Cote D’Ivoire to Burkina Faso will deliver the keynote address. Other regional partners including UNICEF, ECOWAS among others will also be represented.

This zonal conference comes at a time when the region is aligning its plans with the global strategy for World Scouting. It will provide an early opportunity for the NSOs of the zone to engage on the proposals ahead of 16th Africa Regional Conference that will take place in Uganda this August.

We wish them all the best in their deliberations and efforts to develop and promote Scouting as the leading educational movement for young people with a focus on serving their communities to create a better world for all.
