To ensure the training of Leaders and the promotion of Scouting throughout the country, particularly in the rural areas, more Travelling Commissioners are needed. There are two employed at present, whereas the ideal would be one for each Province, to ensure full coverage.
Provinces are mostly self-supporting financially in the urban areas, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to expand activities in other areas.
Scout Headquarters are responsible for Travelling Commissioners and Training services and expenses for these are met from assessments on provinces and grants from certain Trusts.
More funds would mean more Scouts — and more Scouts would mean more better citizens for tomorrow.
