The Global Girls Fund. Change her future. Change our world The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts I'm just thinking how not every girl in the world is a Guide. They can believe in us and they can trust us. If everybody just knew what we do and what we are, every single girl would be a Guide. Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting have been changing girls' lives for over 100 years. We know that when a girl is supported she grows in confidence. This confidence empowers her as a leader and strengthens her resolve to speak out on issues that affect her and those around her. We believe in helping girls developed to their fullest potential so that they can become agents of change in their families, their communities, their nations and the world. A girl with a safe place to belong is a girl with confidence. Great to meet you Lizzi. Tell me about how the Girl Guide Programme has affected you personally. I’ve found it so empowering in my own life. I come from a sort of dodgy area in London, I've always had the Guides and that standard of behaviour and people believing in me which has been incredibly important to me throughout my life. We share values in Guiding you get stronger just knowing there's other girls around the world working for the same thing. A girl with confidence is a girl who leads. What it has given to me is leadership training, the chance to get leadership experience. There are very few places where you can get leadership experience at such a young age. How old are you now? I’m 21. And I have been hosting national projects in my country. We get leadership skills that are practical, that we can take home and implement, hold on to, and transform into a concrete action. That is beyond imagination. A girl who leads is a girl who is heard. My own experience has really showed me how important young women voices are, how much power young women really have when given the opportunity to have their voices heard. Our young leaders could be empowered to actually speak out in national boards, in decision making bodies to advocate for changes. A gir who is heard is a girl who changes her future. and changes our world. When I went home I was the symbol of change. I came back feeling very empowered and inspired to be a world-changer, to be an advocate. We want ensure that we can change the lives of girls for years to come and this is why we have launched The Global Girls Fund. This Fund will help us develop future leaders and advocates of change. Without passion you can’t get your energy. We are very lucky that WAGGGS has found the passion woman of the century, named Kavita Oberoi, as chairman of The Global Girls Fund. I feel hugely privileged to be part of The Global Girls Fund, because of the impact, the worldwide impact this fund will have in the future. We would like to invite you to be part of this change. Here is why one of our signature partners, UPS decided to get involved. Diversity across the world for us is a really large issue. Companies in the world run better with a diverse set of leadership. Specifically for WAGGGS, we've taken a look what WAGGGS do and they way they touch the globe. We took a look at the issue of the plight of the young ladies of the world. Our foundation tries to align to organisations who really can try and be a force in those significant issues so WAGGGS is a natural fit. My boss sends me to meetings about security or about training, because she knows that I know this kind of things by the Girl Guide. There’s more than money, it’s much more about leadership and support, and employees getting out in local communities. We are very grateful for this opportunity. I can’t wait to see the opportunities this will give me. It is the right thing to do, so if other organisations look at UPS and what we do with WAGGGS and they get that deep in their guts, that´s great for them and we hopefully follow our lead. I’ve seen that it really does work. The Global Girls Fund. Change her future. Change our world. The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts
