Index of other sources of International Information and Activities


There is a wealth of International information and activities published in all kinds of books, many of which are published by one of the National GG/GS organizations or WAGGGS. Often, though, the problem is knowing where to look. The aim of this index is to provide a quick and easy reference to these activities.

An excellent place to start any search for information is the book Trefoil Around the World published by WAGGGS. It contains information on each individual WAGGGS country including age levels, the Promise and the Law.

A big thank you to Tiger from Canada who helped me compile some of this list! -- Liz
