The Asociația Ghidelor și Ghizilor din România (AGGR) is the national Guiding organization of Romania. Guiding in Romania began in 1928, was restarted in 1990 and became a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) in 1993. The coeducational organization has 1,000 members (as of 2008).[1]

History[edit]

The first Romanian Guide groups were founded in 1928. The organizer and Chief of the Guides Movement was Princess Ileana, the daughter of Queen Marie. However, activities ceased in 1938 due to political constraints, and contact was lost.

In 1990, after the political change in Romania, a committee was formed to restart Guiding in Romania upon the initiative of members of the Greek Soma Hellinidon Odigon. The Asociația Ghidelor și Ghizilor din România was set up in 1990 and became a corporate body on March 1, 1991. Until 1993, the association was widely supported by WAGGGS representatives and by the Greek Guides.

The AGGR became an associate member of the WAGGGS in 1993, and received full membership in 2005. While working towards full membership, the AGGR started a partnership with the Swiss Guide and Scout Movement.

The AGGR held its first national camp in summer 2006.

The AGGR's logo is the yellow trefoil.

The association is divided in five age-groups:

  • Ghizi - Guides (ages 11 to 14)
  • Ghizi Mari - Senior Guides (ages 14 to 18)
