The Associação de Escuteiros de São Tomé e Príncipe (AESTP, roughly Scout Association of São Tomé and Príncipe) is the national Scouting organization of São Tomé and Príncipe. The organization is not yet affiliated to the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), and is listed as a "potential member country" by WOSM.[1] It is a member of the Comunidade do Escutismo Lusófono (Community of Lusophone Scouting). In 1995, the organization had 421 members.[2]

Girl Guiding started in 1991, but no recent information appears to be available.[3]

São Tomé and Príncipe has issued postage stamps with Scouting motifs, but it is not clear if they are connected to a specific organization.
