Scout is an international social organization. Scout was founded by Baden Powell in 1907 AD with 20 members. Now, there are more than 16 millions members in 150 countries of the world including Nepal.
Baden Powell was a British army officer. Baden Powell fought in the war in South Africa.

Baden Powell commanded his force against the Dutch settlers till the reinforcement arrived. Baden Powell trained the local warriors about the first aid, exchanged news and guarded sensitive places. It made him very popular in England. Later on, Baden Powell focused his attention towards the British children who were ill and jobless. They took alcohol and committed crimes. They had no sense of belongings to a nation. Baden Powell wanted to free them from such habits and inculcated in them the sense of responsibility, leadership and developed their talents. Baden Powell wanted to involve them in creative tasks to help those in need. Baden Powell wanted them to lead a life of duty towards themselves and others.
In 1907 AD, Baden Powell organized a camp in London for 20 boys and founded the Scout. In 1908 AD Baden Powell published a book “Scouting for Boys”. In other countries as well scout groups were formed with girl guides. In some countries, girl scouts are called guides. In Nepal, girls as well as boys are called “Scout”. The logo of the scout is its emblem.
