What is WAGGGS?


The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is the umbrella organization for all the official Girl Guide and Girl Scout associations in the world. WAGGGS is the world’s largest international voluntary organization for girls and young women.


We have 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 144 countries, with more countries working towards membership. Through our members and their families we reach approximately 50 million people worldwide.
 

WAGGGS is divided into five regions: Africa, Arab, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Western Hemisphere and has five (5) World Centres (in Africa, India, UK, Mexico and Switzerland.) These provide an international experience, leadership opportunities and adventure for girls and young women.
