The Botswana Girl Guides Association is the national Guiding organisation of Botswana. It serves 2,432 members (as of 2003). Founded in 1924, the girls-only organisation became a full member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1969.

Program[edit]

The purpose of the association is "to develop the girls' potential in order to make a responsible citizen in any community".[1] The association runs a two-year course on home economics for school dropouts on a national basis, mainly for girls. The participants get a certificate at the end of the second year in either sewing or catering. This project was started in 1981, and some of the graduates are working in local hotels.
