Girl Guides in Hungary are served by the Association of Hungarian Girl Guides (Hungarian: Magyar Cserkészlány Szövetség), with 512 members as of 2003. Founded in 1919, the girls-only organization became a full member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1928, and an associate member again in 1993. It regained full membership in 2008.

History[edit]

The first Guide group in Hungary was set up in 1919. The National Association of Hungarian Girl Guides was founded in 1921 and received as a member of the International Council, the forerunner of WAGGGS, in 1922. In 1928, the Hungarian Girl Guide association acted as hostess to the fifth International Conference of Guiding when the WAGGGS was founded. In 1939, the first Girl Guide and Girl Scout World Camp, Pax Ting, was held in Hungary, and attended by some 4000 Guides from around the world. During World War II the movement was involved in relief work in hospitals and helping refugees. With the siege of the capital, the association's activities were suspended. Guiding activities resumed after the war, but in 1948 the government banned all youth organizations, and the association was forced to cease functioning for the next 40 years. The first attempts to reorganize the movement started in 1988 as a response to political change in Hungary. In 1989, the Association of Hungarian Girl Guides was relaunched. A central committee concentrated on training potential leaders. In 1996 there were 20 troops, mostly working in schools.

Program and ideals[edit]

The Guide Motto is Jó Munkát. The Magyar noun for a single Guide is Cserkész.
