Did you know that the Girl Scouts are marking the 100th anniversary of scouting? The organization started on March 12, 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low in Savannah, Georgia. “Daisy,” as Juliette was known, had a goal for girls to have the opportunity to develop physically, mentally and spiritually while contributing to their communities.
Girl Scouts are not limited to the U.S. We find Girl Scouts worldwide.
Christine Connally, a community counselor in Md, celebrated Scouts around the world in a recent event. Girl Scouts in Brazil are called Bandeirantes. In our Spanish-speaking countries of Bolivia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Span and Colombia, they are Guías.
Girl Scouts in France, South Africa and UK are Girl Guides, and in the Czech Republic, they are called Skaut. The Czech Brownies are called ‘Fireflies‘ because their main duty is to ‘enlighten the world.’ Exactly the goal of Global Awareness!
