The third Africa Regional Conference of the International Scout and Guide Fellowship (ISGF) has ended in Accra.
The five day programme brought together more than a hundred participants from various Scout groups across the sub-region to create awareness about the role the fellowship is playing to help government and allied youth institutions discover and harness potential talents.
President of ISGF-Ghana, Prosper Bani said there was the need for leaders of scout movements to have an opportunity to reignite the elements of scouting that could contribute to the tackling of challenges confronting the youth of today.
He further urged various scout movements across Africa and the world at large to embrace the increasing world of technology which continues to rapidly affect development in all spheres of life.
The media, he said, also had a role to play in increasing awareness on the significance of scouting, adding that “our media fraternity must work with us to bring back scouting forcefully to our young people by partnering us in our efforts to increase scouting globally.”
Mr Bani cited loyalty, trust worthiness, friendliness, kindness, obedience and courtesy as some of the characteristics of a scout, saying with these attributes of young people in any society, the world would be a better place.
ISGF is a worldwide organisation for adults in support of Scouting and Guiding and who want to strengthen the dialogue between communities through community-oriented projects worldwide.
It is open to former members of the World Association of Girls Guide and Girl Scouts WAGGGS and the World Organization of the Scout Movement WOSM, and to adults who did not have the opportunity to be Scouts or Guides and active Scout/Guide leaders but who believe in their ideals.
Created in 1953 and supported by WOSM and WAGGGS, ISGF has National Scout and Guide Fellowships in 66 countries and more to follow. Furthermore, it is also represented in 39 countries with members (individuals or groups) of the Central Branch.
