Development of the movement

Until 1991 the Girl Guides Association of St Christopher (St Kitts) and the Girl Guides Association of St Nevis were two separate Branch Associations of the Guide Association (UK). The Movement was introduced in St Christopher in 1931 when four Guide groups were opened in Basseterre. Guiding in Nevis started at the instigation of a teacher from the United Kingdom. The first Ranger company was opened in 1963.

Over the years, with the help of trainers from the Guide Association (UK), the Girl Guides Associations of St Kitts and of Nevis worked hard to establish themselves in larger towns and some of the villages. In 1989 the two Associations decided to become Members of WAGGGS and, as a first step, worked towards becoming one National Organization. In 1991 the Guide Association (UK) sealed a Deed of Transfer making both Branch Associations independent, and at the 60th Jubilee celebrations of the Girl Guides Association of St Christopher the two Associations joined to become one entity.
