IWD Charity - WAGGGS

World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts

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. They empower girls and young women to stand up and speak out on issues affecting them, and they support girls to be leaders and make positive choices.

A recent survey showed that:
- over 80% of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts say that Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting has helped them 'a lot' to feel more confident in taking the lead
- 94% of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts say they feel like they can play a part in addressing issues important to them

10 million girls, 146 countries

WAGGGS reaches 10 million girls and young women in 146 countries across five regions. They're the largest voluntary Movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world. Their mission is to enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential as responsible citizens of the world, and their vision is for all girls and young women to be valued and to take action to change the world. They've been transforming the lives of girls and young women worldwide for more than 100 years.

Leadership is at the core of the Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement. It runs through everything they do. They provide girls and young women with dynamic, flexible and values-based training in life skills, leadership and citizenship - and they help develop the world's future female leaders. WAGGGS not only speaks out on behalf of girls and young women everywhere advocating to influence people making decisions that improve the lives of girls, they empower young women to advocate for themselves.
