Sangam, India: Gifts for Change 2019

Girls Guides Australia are looking to put together a youth contingent for this event!

Volunteer your time to a project at Sangam and work with one or more of our Community Partner organisations in a Community Action Project. Build friendships for life as you work in an international team of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Discover how to bring about real change in your own life and the lives of others.

Learn about Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting and be part of the latest WAGGGS global initiatives as you develop an international perspective on issues that matter to the members of our ten-million-strong movement. Learn about the traditions and holidays of an ancient and ever-changing India. Gain confidence as you discover the colourful city of Pune, through visits to its diverse sights.

This is a Sangam Leadership event. Leadership events emphasise intercultural learning and personal growth through interaction with Sangam’s Community Partner organizations and exposure to the means and methods of creating change. You will participate in a Community Action Project in which you collaborate with one of Sangam’s Community Partners to refurbish a room, plant a garden, or running activities with children or adults. You will be discovering not only the difference you can make in the lives of others but the impact of such work on yourself. This is a great opportunity to grow your leadership. You will also have the opportunity to learn about the latest WAGGGS programs and initiatives through workshops, games and discussions, allowing you to find your own voice and develop the skills you need to affect similar change in the issues you are most passionate about.
