World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) offers girls and young women in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting an international family. Girls and young women across the world are joined by common bonds of understanding, friendship, the Promise and Law and their aspirations to make the world a better place.
Through its Member Organizations, WAGGGS provides a high quality non-formal educational programme that provides dynamic, flexible and values-based training in life skills, leadership and decision making.
WAGGGS offers projects and programmes at an international level that enable Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to be responsible world citizens through teamwork, service and action in the community.
There are approximately 10 million individual members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. As such, the organization provides a platform for discussion, debate and decision making about issues that affect girls and young women.
Through WAGGGS, young women have the opportunity to meet with their peers around the world and to participate in exciting international projects with major international UN and non-governmental organization partners.
WOSM enjoys a special status with WAGGGS and both organisations work together in an atmosphere of good friendship and mutual respect on the Consultative Committee.
