National Scout Association of Moldova
|Affiliation||World Organization of the Scout Movement|
The Organizaţia Naţională a Scouţilor din Moldova (Moldovan: National Organization of the Scouts of Moldova, ONSM), the national Scouting organization of Moldova, became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1997. The coeducational Organizaţia Naţională a Scouţilor din Moldova has 2,430 members as of 2011.
After the fall of communism, Scouting restarted in Moldova in 1991, but the War of Transnistria of 1992-1993 greatly slowed its development. In 1994, a national Scout organization was formed, and officially registered under the name Organizaţia Naţională a Scouţilor din Moldova.
By 1997, the Scout organization had developed well enough to gain recognition from the World Bureau. On April 18, 1997 the World Organization of the Scout Movement welcomed Moldova as a member country. As of January 1, 1998, the Organizaţia Naţională a Scouţilor din Moldova included 1,540 registered Scouts, boys and girls, in 39 groups throughout the country.
