Why do Girlguiding members make a Promise?

Our Promise links us to other Girlguiding members and the ten million people involved in guiding across the world. Although we may have different languages, cultures and beliefs, each member makes a commitment to do her best:

  • To be an active citizen of her community and the wider world
  • To help others – from a kind word to a neighbour to huge international campaigns
  • To develop her spiritual side – whatever she believes or cares about and to respect the beliefs of others

These themes run through everything we do.

Our inclusive Promise for all is a shared commitment for every member – from all faiths or none. This unity is what makes guiding so special.
