The Value of Scouting
Tanzania Scouts are Messengers of Peace
Tanzania Scouts are engaged in local efforts to build a lasting culture of peace and dialogue. From small actions to large community service projects, young people are tackling local issues, responding to natural disasters, leading peace-building activities, standing up for gender equality, working to make refugees feel welcome and driving meaningful progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and more!
