Girl Guides will “Takeover” Kingstown to build awareness.


The Girl Guides Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will be celebrating World Thinking Day on February 22nd, 2017 under the theme “GROW”.

World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship and solidarity and is celebrated by 10 million girls and young women in 146 countries throughout the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

The theme for this year is “Grow” and the Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will mark the occasion with the first ever “City Takeover” – a walk through Kingstown on Saturday 18th February, 2017 from the Cruise Ship Berth to the Girl Guides Headquarters along a special route.

The event will begin with registration at the Cruise Ship Berth between 12pm and 1pm. Following the registration, participants will complete various legs with special activities along the way. The event will culminate at the Girl Guides Headquarters with a showcase of guiding talent.

International Commissioner of the local Association, Mrs. Beverley Reddock stated that the event is to build awareness about the Girl Guide Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and also to market girl guiding as an opportunity to develop the full potential of girls and young women in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Mrs. Laura Browne, Chief Commissioner highlighted that “Every girl should have the chance to grow, learn and reach her potential”. “This event is not only for our 2000+ Bim Bims, Brownie Guides, Girl Guides, Ranger Guides and Guiders but also for past members, moms, dads, brothers, sisters, the corporate sponsors and supporters through the years, friends and well wishers of girl guiding” Browne said.

T-shirts for the event are available at the Girl Guides Headquarters in Level Gardens.

On February 22nd, 2017, the activities for World Thinking Day 2017 will climax with members wearing their uniforms at their various educational institutions and also with the annual Brownie Public Speaking Competition at the Girl Guides Headquarters from 4pm.

The Girl Guides Movement on the Island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines was greatly inspired when the Chief World Guide Lady Baden Powell visited SVG in less than two decades (1951 & 1964).  She was well received by the Guide Movement here and the people of SVG.  She was satisfied that St. Vincent Movement was growing.  Furthermore, when she died in 1977 she was very satisfied that she had travelled the world to spread, strengthen and enhance the movement and that is was strong enough to survive the tests of time.

Girl Guiding is open to all girls and young women whatever their religion, ethnic group or background. A Girl Guide or Girl Scout accepts the Promise and the Law based on spiritual values, personal development and commitment to helping others.
