Development of the movement

Guiding in Haiti started with a group of pupils and former pupils of a girls schools, Ste Thérèse de l’Enfant Jésus, directed by Mme Carmen René Durocher. These pupils established a club offering out-of-school activities. One of the girls, impressed by her brother’s Scouting activities, asked to incorporate these activities into the club. Mme Durocher contacted the Scout representatives, the religious order in charge and then WAGGGS which eventually led to the establishment of Guiding in Haiti in October 1942. Later on, boarders at St Rose of Lima School became interested in Scouting methods and formed the second Girl Guide group. Guiding spread through the country and Lady Baden-Powell visited Haiti in March 1951.

In 1990, an intermediate branch between the Guides and the Guides Aînées was introduced on a trial basis as the Guides Relais.
