World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Program Country Lead Jobs in Uganda


About Us

There are over a billion girls in the world. Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is the space they need to be the best they can be.

For over 100 years, the World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) have been the only global movement geared entirely to every girl and any girl.

In places local to them – safe from judgment, stereotyping and violence – girls learn by doing, making friends and having fun.

We give girls the chance girls to reach their full potential.

They become happy and adventurous individuals, with the skills and attitudes which are changing their community and their world.

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) keeps the global Movement thriving, united and growing.
