Development of the Movement
Guiding in Kuwait began in 1957 on a limited basis. By 1960, however, much improved programmes had helped to strengthen the Movement, and Guiding then spread to most schools throughout the country. The Association became established by 1965 and was licensed by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour at that time. In 1975 it came under the supervision of the Ministry of Education as it still is today. The Association became recognised in the country as an active educational force which offered young girls and women an opportunity for training on sound leadership.
