Girl Guides develop global awareness. A current focus for Girl Guides worldwide are the Millennium Development Goals – girls explore, at age appropriate levels, global issues such as poverty, child and maternal health, education, access to safe drinking water and are encouraged to make a difference in their community.
In their units, girl guides may learn about other countries and communities through games, songs, food and activities.
Girl Guides is an international organisation, and is the largest worldwide organisation for girls and young women. Through guiding girls have an opportunity to travel the world and attend camps, events and forums.
As an international organisation, Girl Guides welcomes members from all cultures, faiths and communities.
