The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is the largest voluntary Movement dedicated to empowering girls and young women in the world. We represent over 8 million girls and young women across 150 countries.
We believe girls have the right to an equal, safe and sustainable world. Unfortunately, around the globe, multiple barriers, inequalities and lack of opportunities are still preventing girls from reaching their full potential and shaping the world they want to see.
At WAGGGS, we deliver a range of transformational global programmes and events to tackle this very problem. Built on the power of a non-formal education approach, a unique leadership development model for all girls of any age and a strong focus on girl-led advocacy we give girls the confidence, resilience and sense of empowerment they need to take the lead in their lives, driving change on the issues that matter to them, their communities, and the world around them. Incredibly, this activity is delivered and led by a vast and passionate community of volunteers working at a grassroots level, making our model truly sustainable.
We believe in an equal world where all girls can thrive, where every and any girl feels confident to lead and empowered to create a better world together.
