Today many young South Africans live in cities...
The green, clean countryside is far away - it may even be unreal for

demands the same abilities. As we all learn to share the Earth together,
we experience greater happiness in sharing our love and concern with our
friends and neighbours.
Good Scouting is friendship building.
