United Nations NYC.jpgWith ten million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from 146 countries across the world, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is the largest voluntary movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world.

The World Association supports girls and young women to develop their full potential as responsible citizens of the world. We focus on leadership development and active citizenship. These are delivered through our innovative global education and community and advocacy programmes.

We deliver a well-established, unique values-based approach to non-formal learning, that is international and intergenerational. Girls and young women develop life skills through self-development, challenge and adventure.

There are five WAGGGS’ regions – Africa, Arab, Asia Pacific, Europe and Western Hemisphere and four World Centres: Our Chalet in Switzerland, Sangam in India, Pax Lodge in UK and Our Cabaña in Mexico. The World Centres are residential and training centres where girls and young women develop leadership skills through international programmes and friendships.

i am from ireland and i love being a girl guide, i was talking about being a girl guide with some other friends and they were looking down on it so i stood up and said i was proud to be a girl guide and 'if it was so lame why were so many people involved?!' they got interested (obviously they didnt know what it was about) so i talked about it and explained the Baden Powell story aswell as the shake with your left hand thing and a couple days later they came to my house and i showed them my badges and told them that i might get my gold award next year! so exited , I'm proud to be one in ten million, Happy nearly Thinking Day!!!! to every wagggs member wherever you might be just remember every other member is by your side no matter what happens!
