Fédération Gabonaise du Scoutisme
The Fédération Gabonaise du Scoutisme, the national federation of several Scouting organizations of Gabon, was founded in 1936, although Scouting appeared years before brought by colonists, and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1971. The coeducational Fédération Gabonaise du Scoutisme has 3,736 members as of 2004.
There are three Scout Associations that make up the Scout Federation. They are Scouts et Guides Catholiques du Gabon (Catholic Scouts and Guides of Gabon), Eclaireuses-Eclaireurs du Gabon (Scouts and Guides of Gabon) and Eclaireurs et Eclaireuses Unionistes du Gabon (Unionist Scouts of Gabon).
Scouting in Gabon is involved in public service in cooperation with sports and cultural organizations. Tree planting campaigns have been carried out as well as projects to improve some public areas.
The Scout Motto is Toujours Pret, Always Ready.
