History

Scouting existed in the Congo since colonial French times but was banned during the long Marxist period. Guiding was introduced to the Republic of the Congo in 1927, and became a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1957, and again in 1996 after the renewal of the organization.

The Eclaireurs Neutres du Congo were founded by the Éclaireurs Neutres de France, a French non-aligned Scouting organization, in 2004.[2]
