Maldives has more than 5,538 Scouts[1] served by the Scout Association of Maldives (Divehi ދިވެހިރާއްޖޭގެ ސްކައުޓް އެސޯސިއޭޝަން), which was founded in 1963 and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1990. Divehi Scouting is coeducational, serving both boys and girls.

President's Scout badge

The highest rank is the President's Scout. The badge of the Scout Association of Maldives features a fish. The Maldivian economy was entirely dependent on fishing and other marine products for many centuries, and fishing remains the primary occupation.

In 2007, the Scouts celebrated their Golden Jubilee with a jamboree on Hulhumalé.

On January 8, 2008‏, Scout Mohammed Jaisham Ibrahim saved President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom from assassination.[2]
