About Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting

Canada fun.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. Brownies Canada.jpgGirl Guiding and Girl Scouting are open to all girls and young women whatever their religion, ethnic group or background. A Girl Guide or Girl Scout accepts the Promise and the Law based on spiritual values, personal development and commitment to helping others.


What we do

ireland2.jpgThe World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts works with many national, regional and international organizations and alliances to further its mission to enable girls and young women to develop to their fullest potential and become responsible citizens of the world. It has partnered with the United Nations for over 60 years. JLS Kenya Brownies.jpgThrough its Member Organizations and through working directly with girls and young women, WAGGGS delivers high quality non-formal educational programmes and international opportunities that provide girls and young women dynamic, flexible and values-based training in life skills, leadership and citizenship.





Your expertise, skills, interests, life experience, and availability are needed! Without the commitment of the nearly 1.5 million volunteers around the world, Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting could not happen.

Hi, I'm from Aruba and I'm a leader. I love to learn and tell others what I had learnt, what I'm learning and what I'm still learning from others.

I was a Girl Scout for 7 years in my childhood, and now my daughter has just enrolled as a Daisy Scout, and I am training as a leader. This is a wonderful organization that can teach girls so much, and I am proud to be a part of it, and to share it with my daughter.

Hi, I was a member of guide association in Lebanon for more than 12 years and I still have interest about this movement. I spend the best days in my life in guide. I can't forget these days with my friend. I want to say thanks because I get a lot of good things from this experience and I am happy because I am part of this world organization.

I've been a girl scout for...(counts on my fingers) ...between 10-11 years now (Yeah, I know, I'm a bit old to be a girl scout...But hey, being a senior has its perks). I believe the issues page has a lot to offer, considering that this is what the world is dealing with at this moment. AIDS/HIV, poverty, and everything else.
