10 million girls, 146 Countries, 100 years
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts – empowering girls to reach their full potential
With ten million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from 146 countries, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is the largest voluntary movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world.
WAGGGS’ strengths lie in innovative non-formal education programmes, leadership development, community action and advocacy work, empowering girls and young women to develop the skills and confidence needed to make positive changes in their lives, the lives of their communities and their countries.
In partnership with our Member Organizations, 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.
We deliver these programmes in five 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.
