Development of the movement

Guiding was introduced in British Honduras (now known as Belize) in 1937, when six companies were formed in Belize City under church sponsorship. In the same year, the Association was registered with the Girl Guides Association (UK) as the British Honduras Branch of the Girl Guides Association.

A rally held in Belize City in 1938 attracted many more girls to Guiding. By 1939 Guide groups had been established at Stann Creek with sponsorship from the Methodist, Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches. The first Brownie packs were formed in 1948 in Belize City and the first Ranger unit in 1949.

In 1973, when the country changed its name to Belize, the Association became known as the Belize Branch of the Girl Guides Association. The Association grew steadily, helped in its development by trainers from the United Kingdom and the Caribbean Link. In 1986 The Girl Guides Association (UK) signed a Deed of Transfer, giving the Girl Guides Association of Belize self-government in all areas of work.
