Development of the movement
Guiding, like Scouting, existed before independence, but when the revolutionary regime came to power, all the Movements were merged into the JRDA (African Revolutionary and Democratic Youth).
Through the work of a Malagasy missionary nun, Guiding started again on 22 February 1986 and from that date onwards its development has been remarkable, spreading to the whole territory. For example, in Lower Guinea it has reached Conakry, Coyah, Forécariah, Kindia, Boffa; in Higher Guinea Kankan and Siguiri; and in Sylvan Guinea Kissidougou, Gueckédou N’Zérékoré, Beyla, Macenta and Lola.
Guiding is established in the four natural areas (Maritime Guinea, Higher Guinea, Mid Guinea, Sylvan Guinea). All religious denominations are represented in the Movement. It is hoped to continue the spread of Guiding to rural areas.
The association became Full Member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts during the 35th World Conference that took place in Hong Kong in July 2014.
