Scouting in Somalia
|Scouting in Somalia|
Somalia is one of 29 countries where Scouting exists but there is no National Scout Organization which is a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement at the present time, and no organization was ever recognized by WOSM during the nation's periods of Scouting history.
Scouting existed in both British Somaliland and Italian Somaliland. Scouts in Somaliland of the late 1950s used British badges, being a branch of the UK Boy Scout Association. Somalia was represented at the 1967 World Jamboree.
Scouting in Somalia appears to have existed until the 1990s, but due to the unrest in the country, no information on the situation on national level is currently available. In February 2007, UNICEF sources reported the existence of a local Scout group, Boy Scouts of Somaliland, in Ceerigaabo, Somaliland.
