Guiding impacts girls to become smart, confident, caring and good citizens
Members of The Bahamas Girl Guides Association(Association (BGGA) join the 10 million girls in 146 countries to celebrate World Thinking Day today, completing their Connect-Grow-Impact theme by celebrating the impact the movement has on the lives of members and their communities.
Under the theme “Impact” which is being used for the entire year by the World Association of Girl Guides, Girl Scouts, Sunflowers, Brownies, Guides and Ranger Guides — the 2,300 Bahamas Girls Guides, over 100 leaders and 50 Council members are engaged in a variety of activities during its annual Guide Week.
Their service to God continues through their presentation of morning devotions during the week, which will conclude on Friday, February 23 on Radio Bahamas and 1540 at 6:30 a.m; members from Grand Bahama, Abaco, Eleuthera and Exuma along with representatives from New Providence lead the meditations.
