Development of the Movement
Girl Guides have been active in the area which is now Pakistan since 1911. In 1928 this area, along with that of present-day India and Bangladesh, became a Founder Member of WAGGGS under the name of India.
In 1948, the Pakistan Girl Guides Association was welcomed as a separate member of WAGGGS.
The Association’s National Headquarters and Training Centre was opened in Islamabad in 1974. It provides training to Guides, trainers and adult members of the Association, besides national events for Guides and Senior Guides.
In 1983 Guiding was extended to Gilgit and Hunza in the north of the country.
