Welcome To The Gambia Girls Guides Association

The Gambia Girls Guides Association was formed in 1923. The movement was kept going by local women and the spouses of British Civil Servants who ran various units and packs in the built up areas of the country. However, by 1943 the movement became in active due to insufficient adult guidance.

The movement was reactivated in 1946 when Rosamond Fowlls returned from her UK studies and was made the first Chief Guide Commissioner of The Gambia. She established groups around the country in various villages and towns from Banjul to the Upper River Regions.

In 1966 the GGGA became a full member of the World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) based in London.

The thousands of The Gambia Girls Guides Association members are mostly concentrated in schools due to the fact that many of the Girl Guide leaders are working in the teaching profession.

Activities & Training:
The schedule of activities fro the various stages of guiding are grounded on the 8 Point Programme which is enshrined in the Guide Law and 3 Promises i.e. keeping the Guide Law; duty to God or to your religion and duty to your country.

The handbooks for the different levels have been altered to fit in with the Gambian way of life while keeping the fundamental principles and basics.

National Development Participations:
The Gambia Girls Guides Association takes part in many development schemes and activities at both the local and national levels. Often it initiates and funds local development projects.

Skills Centre:
In 1988 the headquarters founded the Skills Training Centre to tutor young women basic literacy and numeracy.

This training centre was established in 1988 with a view to training non-literates and semi-literates in functional numeracy and literacy. It also teaches handicraft, tailoring, cookery, batik making and tie-dye and restaurant / hotel management all with a view to either seeking employment or starting their own businesses.

We look forward for your visit!
