Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is the world's only movement for every girl and any girl because WAGGGS believes that each of them
deserves to be the best they can be. Free to make what they want from the Movement, girls learn by doing, making friends and
having fun. In safe, local spaces, girls develop the skills and attitude to change themselves, their communities and our world. WAGGGS keeps this vital, global Movement thriving, united and growing.

WAGGGS' non-formal educational approach encourages girls
and young women to take the lead in their own growth and development, learning to support each other through cooperation and team
work and building crucial life skills. Through innovative programmes and projects which cover a range of issues relevant to girls in
the modern world, they are given the tools they need to reach their full potential and become true agents of change. For her world.
For our world.
