Girl Guides Australia Mission is to empower girls and young women to grow into confident, self respecting, responsible community members.

Our supporters:

We wish to acknowledge the generous support provided, without which we would not be able to run such a fantastic event as Sydney Jamboree 2018 for our youth members and international Guiding friends.

Many of our youth members have been fundraising in their community to enable them to come, often long distances, to Sydney for an experience of a lifetime. Unfortunately not all eligible girls or volunteers are able to raise sufficient funds to be enable them to come. We would like to help by offsetting the cost of the event including activities to allow more girls to attend, help with the costs of our volunteers and to be able to thank our volunteers for their generous contribution.

How can you help?

Your donation will open up a world of adventure to girls who couldn’t otherwise afford to come, and ensure our volunteers are not discriminated against on the grounds of cost to help and travel to the event.

If you or your business can assist please contact Helen White, CEO Girl Guides NSW & ACT helen.white@girlguides-nswact.org.au

All supporters will be recognized on this website, at camp, newsletters and the GGA Annual report.
