I was lucky enough to talk to them this week about what CEF is doing at their end-of-year awards ceremony. They are a wonderfully curious bunch. They had thought-provoking questions and a bubbly enthusiasm to find out about what it's like to be a girl in another culture. I look forward to exploring more with them and their unit leaders.
I was presented with a cheque to support an eleven year old girl in Viet Nam - the same age as many of them - and Katie, the unit leader, told me they would continue to help her until she finishes school.
Thank you everyone, girls, leaders and parents.
Here's a photo of them and the Girl Guides motto, which aligns closely with CEF's mission.
