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 timecite web |url=http://www.scout.org/en/around_the_world/countries/scouting_elsewhere |title=Scouting Elsewhere |publisher=World Organization of the Scout Movement |accessdate=2007-03-14] , and no organization was ever recognized by WOSM during the nation's periods of Scouting history.

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 in Ceerigaabo, Somaliland, the administrative capital of the Sanaag region.cite news |url=http://www.hellosomaliyouth.net/newsdesk.php?action=fullnews&showcomments=1&id=666 |title=hellosomaliyouth.net: Newsdesk |publisher=UNICEF |author=Nawaad Hassan |date=2007-02-22 |accessdate=2007-03-15]

Though geographically part of the Africa Scout Region, even shown thus on the Region's emblem, Somalian Scouts are apparently participating in Arab Scout Region events on some occasions.

Somalia and Somaliland issued postage stamps with Scouting motifs in 1999 and 2003, but it is not clear if they are connected to a specific organization.cite web |url=http://www.sossi.org/articles/stamps99.htm |title=Scout and Guide Issues 1999 |publisher=Scouts on Stamps Society International |accessdate=2007-03-15] cite web |url=http://www.sossi.org/articles/stamps03.htm |title=Scout and Guide Issues 2003 |publisher=Scouts on Stamps Society International |accessdate=2007-03-15]

The Scout Motto is "Uwe Tayari", "Be Prepared" in Swahili, one of the many languages spoken in the country.
