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!

1 day to go...


The Guyana journey has begun as we all made our way to the travelodge at Gatwick Airport, arriving in dribs and drabs throughout the afternoon. Poor Laura had been there all day by the time we all arrived - there is only one flight from Glasgow per day! Eventually though we were all together and ready to begin in our adventure. 
Sadly we are now a five, as one of our beloved team members is unable to join us :( We all miss you Zoe and totally support your decision! 
After Trinidad tomorrow, watch this space for new posts!
