A group of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from across the Arab region recently joined forces in the United Arab Emirates to further develop their leadership skills.
With the support of UPS, the aim was to build leadership capacity at an international and national level, to ensure a better guiding experience across the region.
dynamic training focused on exploring leadership concepts and approaches;
identifying personal leadership style, competences and skills; identifying ways
of meeting the challenges of the 21st century, as well as promoting friendship
and cultural understanding across the region.
Games, sketches and panel discussions were also part of the three-day workshop.
The sessions were a big hit with members from across the region.
Sana Hakeem, a Girl Guide from Lebanon, said: “The training sessions were
remarkable. They were rich, engaging and very well prepared. We learnt about
ourselves, as well as how to unleash our hidden potential.”
It was also a wonderful opportunity for Girl Guides from across the region to get together, meet one another and share ideas.
“Although we belong to different nationalities and come from various backgrounds, we were able to blend with each other by sharing our experiences and communicating knowledge.”
