The Girl Guides Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will be celebrating World Thinking Day next Wednesday.
World Thinking Day is celebrated by 10 million girls and young women in 146 countries throughout the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship and solidarity. This year’s theme is Grow. The Girl Guides Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will mark the occasion with the first ever City Takeover – a walk through Kingstown this coming Saturday 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 12 noon and 1 p.m. 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.” T-shirts for the event are available at the Girl Guides Headquarters in Level Gardens.
On Feb. 22, 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 4 p.m.
