Girl Guides Leaders are being encouraged to move beyond mere recreational activities during weekly interactions with their charges to helping to foster intellectual growth, and support their emotional well-being.

immediate past training commissioner for the Grenada girls guide association Gloria Bonaparte underscored the importance of this approach in empowering individuals to advocate for themselves during a ‘voices against violence’ curriculum training at the Radisson Grenada resort on Friday.

The Voices Against Violence is a co-educational curriculum developed by WAGGGS, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, and UN Women.

It is geared to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills to identify and prevent violence in their communities.

The training programme is being implemented with $25,000.00 grant funding through the Grenada Spotlight initiative.

Chief Commissioner of the Grenada Girl Guides association Tamara Savoury said the partnership enabled the association to provide manuals and activities, ensuring the sustainability of the initiative.

 She said they are also partnering with the Young Leaders from TAMCC to implement this year’s activities.

The voices against violence training, the first to be executed so far this year saw participation from more than 70 Girl Guides Leaders, who are expected to be better equipped TO IMPLEMENT  similar trainings within their various units.
