Development of the Movement

Guiding began in Libya in 1958 when a Brownie pack was opened at a girls’ primary school in Tripoli. The leader was Libyan, assisted by an experienced leader from Lebanon, and an intensive leader training programme was organized for a selected group of Libyan girls. On completion of the course some of them established a Senior Guide unit, with the assistance of the Scout Association, and, soon afterwards, a Guide company was opened.

Initially Guiding did not extend beyond a small number of women teachers and students, but gradually more and more people joined the Movement. Additional units were formed in Tripoli and a commissioner was chosen for each section. In 1959 Guiding spread to Benghazi, and soon afterwards to other regions of the country.
