With just under 2 months to go till we will be heading out to Guyana on our project, we thought it was about time we brushed up on our Guyana knowledge, and we thought you might to know a little bit about what we've learned!

The Guyanse Girl Guides Association (GGGA) was formed in 1922, when the country was still a British colony, and the association has grown and develped since then, becoming full members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) in 1975. The GGGA is a also member of the Carribbean Link, a link created between Carribean countries to support each others Assocations and provide a framework for resources and programmes. There are approximately 1100 members of GGGA who meet in schools and churches but often don't have a set meeting time or length! The association is divided into different sections just like in the UK;
- Brownies aged 7-11
- Guides aged 11-15
- Rangers aged 15+
- Young Leaders aged 18+ who are training to be full leaders
