Development of the movement

Guiding in Liberia started in 1920, and in 1928 the Association became a Founder Member of WAGGGS. By 1930, however, all contact between WAGGGS and the Liberian National Organization had been lost and its membership was cancelled in 1931. From 1953 to 1955 efforts were made to revive Guiding and in 1955 a representative of WAGGGS visited Liberia and helped to bring together isolated groups of Guides to form the nucleus of a National Organization. Over the next ten years Guiding spread to all areas of the country with the help of WAGGGS trainers and advisers.

Liberian Guiding has suffered because of civil wars and the partitioning of the country but Guiding is once again re-establishing itself.
