WAGGGS supports International Women's Day

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) has been the Charity of Choice for the International Women's Day website for many years.

10 Million Girls, 146 Countries

WAGGGS is the largest volunteer organisation focused on girls and young women, with 10 million members across 146 countries. WAGGGS's mission is to empower every girl to reach her fullest potential.

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.

For her world

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.
