Catholic Scouts Organisation
The Catholic Scout Organization of the Diocese of Karonga was established in October 2019 by Bishop Martin Mtumbuka. Its particular purpose is to contribute to the comprehensive education of young people through the scouting educational method enlightened by the Catholic faith. The new group is a member of the Scout Association of Malawi (SAM).
The Diocese of Karonga wants to grow the Catholic Scout Organization in order to reach out and develop more young people. To fulfill this purpose there is need to make sure that the Scouting program is available and attractive to all young people in the Diocese. This means doing some things differently by providing better support to Scout Groups, engaging proactively with schools and churches centres so that they start new Scout Groups.
