About us

The Olave Baden-Powell Society (OB-PS) is a global network of WAGGGS supporters, providing vital financial help to the Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement.

More than 1300 individuals from 59 countries have chosen to express their commitment to girls' and young women's futures by supporting OB-PS and WAGGGS.

Each of these individuals - men and women from all walks of life, some who have been involved in Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting, and increasingly, many who have not - believes that WAGGGS and its work can change lives and influence the future for whole communities, and they have each invested their membership donation to support that belief. 


What we do

At its core, the Olave Baden-Powell Society is designed to provide financial support to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, and ensure a steady stream of income which funds its work, its projects and its programmes. Visit How we help to find out more about how we use your donations.

OB-PS also offers members the chance to stay connected with others from the global Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement. We are a unique network of individuals with a shared interest in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting. 

Becoming a member gives you the chance to support the Movement, ensure its sustainability, and also keep in touch with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts through special events.
