GOLD Guyana 2012

Hello and welcome to our blog! We are a group of 6 Girlguiding UK members aged between 19 and 27, who have been selected to take part in a GOLD project this summer.
GOLD stands for Guiding Overseas Linked with Development, a project run by Girlguiding UK which gives young women aged between 18 and 30 the chance to assist in community action projects in other countries. As well as making a positive impact on the community, we also hope to grow the Guiding Association in the country so that they can participate more fully in WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts). There are 8 projects this year, including our destination Guyana.
We're all very excited for our GOLD journey to begin, and we hope you enjoy reading about how we are preparing and what we are doing when we get there!

Badges have arrived!

Hello everyone!

It's about time for an update on what we've been up to!
Great excitement has been running through the GOLD Guyana 2012 team recently as badge designs have been floating around, back and forth to the badge company and being approved and all sorts!
We have finally recieved the coveted items and are ready to sell them to you all :) As you can see, they are beautiful and by buying one you will be supporting both us, and the Girlguiding Association in Guyana! You can also get a free (and amazing) challenge pack that you can use with your units if you have one. Email if you would like a copy.
They can also be seen on our fantastic kit, kindly organised by Nikki, including 3 tops and a hoodie (very excited to get these)!
In other news, third briefing is just around the corner so we're all busy packing! We'll be having a very busy weekend judging by the list we have prepared, but it will be great to get things sorted and feel prepared for our trip! So you can expect a new blog post shortly, probably much longer than this, but we were just so excited we had to share our badge availability news! Many thanks from the whole team to Laura, who has been the driving force behind the badge making - what a star!
That's all for now, but keep an eye out for a new post soon :)

lots of GOLD love,
The GOLD Guyana Team 2012
