NEW DELHI: The UAE Girl Guides Movement (UAEGG) is participating in the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts’(WAGGGS) 36th World Conference.

The five-day conference, running from Sept.18 to 22 in New Delhi, India, included several discussions and expert panels that aligned with the UAEGG’s visions of an updated and progressive system to develop governance, management and sustainability systems and further increase the diversity of members, goals and opportunities.

Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, and UAEGG Chairperson, the movement has embraced several goals, including encouraging girls and young women at all levels to achieve their aspirations, increase community awareness and develop funding and financing opportunities, which are also key strategies of WAGGGS.

Representing UAEGG at the conference were Board Members Reem BinKaram and Aisha Al Suraidi.

Reem BinKaram said, “It is vital that we invest in facilities, resources and curriculum development to ensure that the UAE Girl Guides Movement continues to recruit and retain girls and young women. And, as well as provide a valuable service to our community, and a source of inspiration to our members, we must also define a way to ensure that we are on track through outcomes and indicators, and be able to respond to changing needs and expectations.”

Aisha Al Suraidi said, “Attending the conference has been an excellent way for UAEGG to not only listen and appreciate the strategies of the world body, but also to impart our own initiatives and goals. I feel that we have all taken a great deal away from these sessions and UAEGG has provided plenty of its own insights which will prove valuable to the other members.”

During the course of the WAGGGS’ conference, UAEGG voted on the main agenda items, including fees, communication, delegation of administration, recruiting, adoption of procedural rules, modifying rules and strategic appropriation.
