Development of the Movement

Guiding in Rwanda began in 1962 with the help of members of the Guides Catholiques de Belgique, but, through lack of support from local leaders, interest in the Movement dwindled after independence later that year. In 1967 Guiding was revived as a branch of the Scout Association.

The Girl Guides set up their own organization, the Fédération des Guides du Rwanda, in 1972, with a national team responsible for administration. The Federation was composed of two Associations, the Association des Guides Catholiques and the Association des Guides Protestantes.

A proposal was made in 1974 to form a single Association, and this idea was accepted two years later by the first National Assembly. In 1977 the Constitution was accepted at a general meeting, a permanent national team was appointed, and a work plan was drawn up. The Association des Guides du Rwanda received official government recognition in 1980.
