Development of the Movement

Guiding in Portugal began in 1920’s decade, when the first companies were started in Oporto. The Movement later spread to Lisbon and in 1931 Brownie packs and Guide units were established on the Island of Madeira.

The Association became a recognized national Movement in 1934, but by 1937 all Guiding activities had been suspended because of political unrest. Only the Island of Madeira was able to keep the flame alive, which helped the Association resume activities in 1954. In 1960, the Association received the Girl Guides World Chief and in 1975, during the 22nd World Conference in England, became an effective member of WAGGGS.
