What is Girlguiding BGIFC?

British Guides in Foreign Countries (BGIFC) is part of Girlguiding UK, and has been in existence since 1911.

Units are based in many parts of the world, in areas where it is impossible or inappropriate, for reasons such as language or culture, for the girls to join the local national organisation.

Members make the same Promise as in the UK, follow the current programme as appropriate to their Section, and wherever possible follow the policy and rules of Girlguiding UK.

Big Brownie Birthday challenge badges are now available via the Autumn Guiding Magazine and also on the Big Brownie Birthday area of the guiding website.

There are TWO challenges one for the Brownies and the other for all the other sections to complete.

Everything you need AND additional activity packs are available on the website.

Make sure you have a look and have a go at the challenge during the Big Brownie Birthday celebrations during 2014
