"Friendship makes us who we are, where would we be without each other?” Happy GALentines Day! Here at WAGGGS we are celebrating the female friendships which make our lives great ❤️ Being a Girl Guide or Girl Scout means you’re part of a 10-million-strong friendship circle ☘️ How are you celebrating those you love today?
"Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live." Celebrating female leaders like Mae Jamison this International Day of Women and Girls in Science #WomenInScience#ForHerWorld#TeamGirl
"I clearly remember how shy I used to be before I joined Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting. Since then I have become a better person who is more confident, happy, passionate and no longer fearful when it comes to speaking up for myself and others." (Lena Maria, 25, Costa Rica)
We support girls and young women across the world to speak out on the issues that matter to them. Lena Maria is just one of the amazing delegates joining us at #CSW62 next month. #TeamGirl#Forherworld#GreatGirlLeaders
"There are many women in my life who have inspired me and shown me I can achieve whatever I want, as long I’m dedicated and persevere... these empowered women are the reason why I´m now brave enough to raise my voice and take action." (Lucia, 22, Argentina)
Next month a group of incredible WAGGGS Delegates will represent the voices of 10 million girls and young women at #CSW62 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. You can read more about the delegates, and hear their stories, on our website.
Today was the last day of Helen Storrow Seminar 2018 😢
It's been an incredible event with 42 amazing young women from all over the world. At our closing ceremony this evening, they made promises for the future, ready to venture back to their countries. We know that they'll go on to take the lead and make inspiring change 💪🙋🙌 #HSS2018#BeTheChange#ForHerWorld
"Big change starts with little change" - Fernanda
This afternoon we're hearing from some of last year's Helen Storrow Seminar participants - Emily from USA, Ina from Albania and Fernanda from Paraguay. They've taken on incredible projects to improve the environment in their communities. This year's group are making plans today for their projects, thinking about why, how and what they are going to do. #hss2018#leadership@our_chalet
🎵🎵We're going this way, that way, forwards and backwards all on our wooden skis.....🎵🎵 •
Today we went into the town of Adelboden, complete with team challenges! •
We’re having a party! This #WorldThinkingDay WAGGGS is throwing a party with 10 million girls & their friends on the invite list; starting in Pacific Ocean & finishing in North America.
Girl Guides & Girl Scouts from any country can join on 22 February. Each will RSVP to WAGGGS & sign up to Google. On the day they will receive a link to connect with Guides based in a time zone to the east.
Together they'll learn, lead, sing, dance & show each other the positive impact they make through guiding. The country will then connect with a group to the west - like a massive digital relay of birthday baton passing. If you want to join this digital party, joining up the global network of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, register at: email@example.com
I'm @_inesmgoncalves and I'm taking over WAGGGS social media for today! I'll show you my day here at the World Bureau and also the impact of Girl Guiding in my life.
I joined Girl Guides in Portugal when I was 7 years old after asking my parents to take me to a meeting. I know it sounds very cliché but, on that day, I found a world that revolutionized my whole life.
I had no idea, neither did my parents, that this movement would be such an important part of my education, of my beliefs and the way I now see the world!
And, as you can see, I think the impact throughout the years has been huge!! 😂
There's just over a month to go until #WTD2018 🌎🌏🌍 Make sure you've ordered your #ThisIsImpact badges for your group. We hope you're as excited as we are for this very special celebration?
