Development of the Movement
Guiding in Sri Lanka began in 1917 when the first Girl Guide company was opened in the historic hill town of Kandy. The Movement has since spread to all areas of the country, to strengthening ties between girls and young women from the country’s diverse ethnic, cultural and religious groups. The Association will be celebrating its centenary in March 2017. Centenary activities will commence on 25 June 2014 with the tagline A 1000 Days to A 100 years. From 25 June to 1 July 2014 the Association will be organising a Child Safety Week with child safety specific themes for each of the seven days.
