For All Girl Scouts
The Girl Scouts Global Action patch was developed in partnership with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). This is an exciting and enriching way for Girl Scout Daisies to Ambassadors to participate in realizing the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which aim to reduce extreme poverty and impact major world concerns by 2015. By participating in the Global Action patch activities, girls can learn, in a fun and educational way, about serious global issues affecting girls, young women, and their communities. Each Girl Scout who completes activities will join in WAGGGS' international movement of 10 million girls who together are advocating for themselves and others, both locally and globally—one of the Take Action outcomes (PDF) detailed in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
