Come to Sangam to learn about yourself, your leadership, and Her World.
Participate in a Community Action Project working with one of Sangam’s Community Partner Organisations. Learn about their achievements as you work alongside them and develop the skills and attitudes that will help you create change within yourself. Be inspired to take your learning home to share with girls and women in your area for the benefit of Her World. Learn about Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting, and be part of the latest 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 of 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 organisations 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 run 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 skills. 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 effect similar change in the issues you are most passionate about.
