Development of the Movement
Since 1928 Girl Guides have been active in the area which is now Bangladesh. The Bangladesh Girl Guides Association was welcomed as a separate member of WAGGGS in 1973 and is now the country’s largest national non-political organization, offering leadership training to girls and young women.
In addition, Guiding has been incorporated into the student curriculum at the college of physical education and at the institute for primary teachers’ training, and every year more than 80 young women participate in training. Guiding is also an integral part of the secondary school curriculum for girls.
