Becki Moore who until recently was a leader with 1st Carisbrooke (Princess Beatrice’s Own) Guides has now returned from a Girlguiding GOLD adventure to Oman.
Becki was one of six members of Girlguiding to visit Oman- a trip that commenced at the end of September.
All six members were excited to travel to Oman where they helped local residents in Oman get to know the benefits of Girlguiding more.
On arrival they posted, “We have arrived in Oman!! We were given a very warm welcome by the Scout and Guide HQ before flying to Salalah and being greeted with roses. We are looking forward to exploring the Dhofar region.”
On the 28th September they wrote: Today we ran our first training session with Rangers from the Dhofar region and visited the Land of Frankincense museum. We’re looking forward to more training tomorrow.
So the adventure continued….
On a return visit to Carisbrooke Becki told the Guides of her experiences and showed them her collection of souvenirs. Before leaving she presented the Guide Unit with a keep-sake camel.
Girlguiding offers its members the chance to undertake GOLD projects which improve skills and give the chance to experience new cultures and make a long-term impact.
From joining campaigns to end violence against women and girls, to encouraging young leaders – GOLD empowers young women to work in partnership with other Guide Associations around the World. It’s great for GOLD teams, who have fantastic adventures overseas, and it’s great for the Guide Associations too.
GOLD has been working with member countries of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) for nearly 29 years. So far, we’ve given over 900 members of Girlguiding an adventure of a lifetime.
