Development of the Movement
Guiding was established in Greece in 1932 and was revived in 1945 after a period of inactivity during the Second World War. The Movement has since spread throughout the country and Soma Hellinidon Odigon (the Greek Girl Guides Association) is now the largest youth organization in Greece.
For the time being, the Greek Guiding Association is running the action 'A World in a Suitcase' based on the educational program "Refugee flows, human rights and interculturalism", a program that for the first time is being applied in Greek schools, approved by the Greek Ministry of Education and under the auspices of UNHCR. The action’s goal is helping the Greek students, through experiential activities, understand the refugee crisis and develop their compassion regarding the refugees who are fleeing their countries. A main goal is also to bring the students closer to the human rights' values and teach them the way they can promote these values.
