Guiding Overseas Linked with Development (GOLD) enables young women to develop their potential and make a difference in the world.

Why international?

Girls have repeatedly said that they would welcome more international adventures in Girlguiding, and to go on a trip is not only an enormous adventure, but also potentially life-changing. Every year lots of trips take place from World Centres, to small and large European jamborees, to projects in under privileged countries and it is through trips such as these girls discover the world, new cultures, different lifestyles and ways of thinking and, sometimes, encounter thought provoking issues of which they were previously unaware. As they take on these challenges they also discover a lot about themselves, and usually return inspired and keen to make a difference, either to their own way of life or to others around the world whose lot is perhaps less fortunate. Eventually many go on to lead a guiding trip themselves, thus enabling future generations to have the same opportunities.

Our region has many international opportunities; so if you are 11 years old or over there is an opportunity out there for you!

Hundreds of girls from Anglia region have travelled abroad through Girlguiding and had the experience of a life-time. Small trips, big trips, there is something for everyone.

For more information ask your unit leader or contact Rachel, our international adviser, via our contact us page.

Take that first step, it will make a difference!

International Community Experience (ICE)

International Community Experience (ICE) is for Guides aged 11-13. The purpose of an ICE weekend/trip is to give girls a taste of community action, increase their global awareness and prepare them for international experiences.

World Centres

A trip to any of the World Centres is an unforgettable international guiding experience.

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) run five World Centres in London, Mexico, Switzerland, India and now Africa!
