The twin themes of child mortality and maternal health, and the focus countries Republic of Ireland, Jordan, Malawi, Pakistan and Venezuela have been confirmed for World Thinking Day 2013.
On 22 February 2013, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide will come together to learn about and take action on the themes of “together we can save children’s lives” and “every mother’s life and health is precious”, based on Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 4 and 5.
Four of the five focus countries (Jordan, Malawi, Pakistan and Venezuela), which represent the different WAGGGS Regions, will receive grants from the World Thinking Day Fund which they will put toward action projects based on MDG 4 and/or 5 in their countries.
