SCOUTING encourages the holistic physical, mental, spiritual and social development of youth with a strong emphasis on duty to country and helping other people.

Minister for Youth and Sports (Ret) Commander Viliame Naupoto conveyed this message while officially opening the 12th Fiji National Scout Jamboree and 100th anniversary at Queen Victoria School in Tailevu yesterday.

Mr Naupoto said the scouting movement had come a long way and was known to be one of the oldest youth movements in Fiji.

"Jamborees are wonderful opportunities for all Scouts and leaders to come together and participate in the activities, learn new skills and meet and make new friends," he said.

Mr Naupoto said the movement was part and parcel of the ministry's integral partner in terms of youth empowerment and development agenda.

He says it is a self-education program that encourages individuals to be actively involved in and be responsible for their own development.
