Development of the Movement
The Lesotho Girl Guides Association (LGGA) was founded as the Basutoland Wayfarer in 1925. LGGA is a full member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Most of the members are from schools.
The LGGA is totally independent to assist young girls to grow into good citizens of their country. The LGGA is committed to the goal of ‘advancement of girls and young women’ and ‘education for a changing world’, hence there is need to focus on health and the development of girls and young women. Most of the training takes place in the districts, but there are monthly skills training sessions at the LGGA headquarters, based on the level and kind of training needed to counsel the Guides, such as Patrol Leaders’ training. Community-based training also takes place accordingly, such as training disabled women on HIV/AIDS education.
