In 1912, in a world when women were yet to get the vote, a few Guernsey working class girls got together to form the first Girl Guide unit in Guernsey. They were joining the Girl Guide Association in the UK that has become the world's largest organisation for girls and young women.
From those few local girls, numbers have grown to over 750 members in Guernsey and 10 million members' worldwide. A hundred years later, the core values remain the same but GirlGuiding has a very different feel and look. GirlGuiding in 21st Century focuses on today's issues from body image to health issues; it offers a female-only environment where girls and young women can be themselves and where they devise their own programme of activities and have fun.
On Liberation Day, members of GirlGuiding Guernsey will be involved in reproducing the Go Guernsey Badge, featuring our Guernsey Donkey. GirlGuiding is always looking to move forward and will embrace the challenges of the next hundred years.
