Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: The Europe Region of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is an International Non-Governmental Youth Organization comprising all Girl Guide and Girl Scout Associations across 39 countries in Europe, representing over 1.1 million girls and young women between the ages of 5 and 19.

WAGGGS’ mission “to enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential as responsible citizens of the world” aims to empower girls and young women, as active citizens and provide them opportunities to develop leadership and life skills through progressive self-development, challenge and adventure. Through our global education, community action and advocacy programmes, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are empowered to become active citizens, who want to improve their lives and the lives of others around them, wherever they live. To achieve this mission, the Europe Region WAGGGS supports its Member Organizations in delivering quality non-formal education programmes, training leaders and building strong and sustainable associations.

WAGGGS non-formal education programmes offer progressive responsibility for our members and develop all aspects of the individual (intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, social and moral). Acknowledging the diversity of Europe, our Member Organizations tailor these educational programmes to the needs of girls and young women in their particular cultures and socio-economic environments, adapting to meet their needs and emphasizing the need for mutual understanding, the interdependence between people of all cultures and social backgrounds as well as that of the natural environment. In many Member Organizations, the mission of WAGGGS specifically provides for girls and young women with fewer opportunities who could most benefit from our programmes.

The Europe Region WAGGGS promotes the development of networks between individuals and associations to develop the European dimension of our work by encouraging co-operation and partnerships. In order to maximize networking opportunities, we offer specific opportunities to participate in a wide range of European-level activities, to cross-fertilize ideas and exchange experience between girls and young women from different countries and cultures.
