Development of the Movement
The Girl Guides Association of Qatar was formed in 1995 after issuing a draft law to organise the Association. Brownie packs were set up in elementary schools, Girl Guide groups in preparatory schools and advanced Girl Guiding in secondary schools. By 1997, the Association had taken long and qualitative strides and had been generalised in all sectors of education. New leaders’ training was based on gradual promotion of leadership and producing inspectors to ensure high standards of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting. The movement in Qatar has continued to increase in members and the programme level remains high and relevant to the needs of girls and young women
