A Malilangwe Community Initiative
The Cadet Ranger Program is a community initiative led by The Malilangwe Trust that is focused on training new scouts. The inaugural course was initiated on December 10th, 2018 with 22 young men (aged 16 to 19 years) recruited from the neighboring Dhumisani Secondary School.
The curriculum for the CRP course was approved by The Ministry of Education and is held over a period of 9 weeks throughout the course of a year. Passing on a diverse range of skills the Malilangwe Scouts act as mentors to the cadets by sharing their wisdom with the young recruits.
Duties shared amongst the cadets include cleaning, washing, and cooking meals. Standards for levels of cleanliness and neatness are explained and demonstrated by the Scouts to encourage high standards and teamwork.
