World Association of Girl Guides and Girls Scouts
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is the largest voluntary Movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world. We support ten million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from 145 countries, empowering them to achieve their fullest potential and become responsible, active citizens of the world. www.wagggs.org
Our strength lies in our innovative and non-formal education programmes, advocacy work, community action and leadership programmes which support girls and young women to develop the skills and confidence needed to enact positive change in their communities and internationally.
There are five WAGGGS’ regions – Africa, Arab, Asia Pacific, Europe and Western Hemisphere and four World Centres: Our Chalet in Switzerland, Sangam in India, Pax Lodge in UK and Our Cabaña in Mexico. The World Centres are residential and training centres where girls and young women develop leadership skills through international programmes and friendships.
