Development of the Movement
The Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Association was the first national organization promoted Guiding and Scouting Movement in Georgia. In 1993, due to a majority of boys in the membership and at the request of the girls’ representatives, the Association was renamed as Guides and Scouts Association of the Republic of Georgia.
The 19 April is an official celebration day for the Association of the Girl Scouts of Georgia ‘Dia’, as the anniversary of Georgia’s First National Girl Scout Conference in 1997.
Supervised by WAGGGS and Link organizations such as the Irish Girl Guides (IGG) and the Northwest Georgia Girl Scout Council (USA, Atlanta, Georgia), the Georgian Association managed to achieve great success in promoting Guiding methods all over the country throughout their joint activities in 1993-1994 and in 1999-2000 with IGG.
In 1995 a training centre was set up to encourage Georgian girls to get basic knowledge of Guiding training methods and programmes.
Since March 1998 ‘Dia’, in co-operation with WAGGGS, has been carrying out a project called the Non-formal Education of Girls in the Caucasian Area. It has proved to be an efficiently organized project with a packed scheme of regional and international training for leaders.
The development of regions is carried out according to the strategy for development. ‘Dia’ includes a balance of ethnic groups and population sectors. This is especially important in Georgia which is renowned for its multicultural society.
