The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) believes that girls and young women must be at the centre of all international development policies and programmes. WAGGGS' work is firmly grounded in the international human rights framework that recognizes rights as inherent to all, inalienable and universal. WAGGGS believes our rights as citizens bring with them responsibilities - to make sure that we do not allow our rights to be eroded, but also to support the rights of others.The present and the future of humankind are in the hands of our young and future generations and in particular in the hands of girls and young women. As the voice of girls and young women, WAGGGS has identified the international human rights framework as a priority issue on which to take a stand and speak out.
