Help us bring Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting to even more girls and young women around the world and make a positive change in their lives
Expanding WAGGGS' reach
Girl Guides and Girl Scouts
Help a girl raise her hand, be her hero.
For over 100 years we have worked towards ensuring “all girls and young women are valued and take action to change the world.” We are the world’s only movement for every girl and any girl. We believe each girl deserves to be the best they can be. We represent 10 million girls in 150 countries.
Our strengths lie in our innovative non-formal education programmes, leadership development, advocacy work and community action. We empower girls and young women to develop the skills and confidence needed to make positive changes in their lives, communities and countries.
By 2020 our vision is to reach 12 million girls and young women in 154 countries. We want to provide more opportunities for girls to connect, grow and impact. In 2015 we launched our ambitious New Countries Campaign to provide finances and support to make this vision for 2020 a reality. In 2017, we welcomed Aruba, Azerbaijan, Palestine and Syria as our newest full member organisations and Albania and Niger as our newest associate member organisations.
There are currently ten active countries in the membership pipeline. This means ten countries actively working towards membership. These are Afghanistan, Algeria, Comoros, Croatia, Ethiopia, Gabon, Montenegro, Mozambique and Serbia. We are confident that we can get there with your much needed help.
In conjunction with our new campaign we have launched the Global Supporter Award, aimed at encouraging greater levels of giving towards this campaign and others. Follow the link to learn more.
