SCOUTING IN VANUATU
Formerly calledNEW HEBRIDES
Scouting is active on this Southwest Pacific Island. There are 12 islands in a chain. The islands were administered by both the French and English. They gained their independence in 1980. Upon independence, they changed their name to Vanuatu.
Vanuatu is a small Scout Association but is active in Pacific Region Scouting activities. Two Scouts participated in the 19th World Jamboree in Chile in December 1998.
Scouting in Vanuatu is not a recognized member of the World Bureau (WOSM) but has close ties to it.
