Development of the Movement
The Movement started in Ecuador in 1919 when several companies were formed in the city of Guayaquil, but it was not until 1952 that an Association was established with the help of a WAGGGS’ Travelling Commissioner for the Western Hemisphere. Support from the Western Hemisphere Region helped the Association to develop, and it has since extended from the tropical coastal cities to the mountain regions in the interior of the country. The headquarters for the Association were completed with the assistance of four National Associations who contributed through WAGGGS’ Mutual Aid Scheme, and were opened by the Chairman of the Western Hemisphere Committee.
