Embarking on any one of these leadership journeys enables girls to know themselves better and realize the vast capabilities they possess. Each of these journeys culminate in a take-action project that is designed and intended to make a positive impact and lasting difference in the community and world.

Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. World Thinking Day is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Global Action Theme (GAT) based on the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people. The theme for World Thinking Day 2014 is girls worldwide say “education opens doors for all girls and boys.”
This theme is based on United Nation’s Millennium Development Goal 2, to achieve universal primary education, and is especially focused on making sure girls have access to education. Educating girls is one of the most powerful and effective ways to reduce global poverty.
Did you know…?
66 million girls are out of school globally (UNESCO). That’s even more girls than all the girls in Canada, Mexico and the United States combined!
There are 33 million fewer girls than boys in primary school. (Education First) That’s approximately the number of all school-age girls in the United States.
In some places, there are 90 students to one teacher. (Global Campaign for Education)
A child born to a literate mother is 50% more likely to survive past the age of 5. (UNESCO)
A girl with an extra year of education can earn 20% more as an adult. (The World Bank)
Girls with 8 years of education are 4 times less likely to be married as children. (National Academies Press)
14 million girls under 18 will be married this year. That’s 38,000 girls today. (UNFPA)
Even though K-12 school is free in the United States, almost one in every seven US adults cannot read. (U.S. Department of Education, National Institute of Literacy)
World Thinking Day not only gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships, but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community—one of nearly 150 countries with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. WAGGGS selected the following countries of focus for World Thinking Day 2014 to represent the WAGGGS regions:Egypt (Arab Region), Benin (Africa), Bangladesh (Asia/Pacific), and Armenia (Europe).
The World Thinking Day award activities are designed to complement the Girl Scout leadership journeys and theGirl Scout Leadership Experience (PDF) with an enhanced global focus. A specific benefit of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is girls advancing diversity in a multicultural world, which means that girls learn to think and act in a way that promotes an inclusive environment, respecting and valuing diverse backgrounds, viewpoints, and life experiences.
Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries.
