Development of the movement
Guiding began in Guyana in 1922 and the Movement was officially registered as a Branch Association of the Guide Association (UK) in 1924. By 1927 the Association had its own headquarters in Georgetown and by 1932 two Ranger companies were in operation.
In the years that followed, much intensive training was undertaken throughout Guyana with the help of trainers from other countries.
