GIRL SCOUTS DAY 2017

In the olden times, women were considered to be born for only one purpose:  to be a homemaker.  They stayed at home most of the time and were not even allowed education in schools or join community activities.  This was changed through the years through efforts of various societal factions, one of which is the Girl Scouts.

The Origin and Purpose of the Girl Scouts Day:

The Girl Scouts Day is celebrated on its birthday, March 12.  This date in 1912 is when the first Girl Scouts meeting, attended by eighteen ladies from Savannah, Georgia, occurred.  It was headed by its founder, Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Law, aiming to develop the girls’ courage, character and confidence.  Its original group name was “Girl Guides of America.”

The purpose of the special day is to acknowledge the Girl Scouts in America and their contributions in making the world a better place to live in. This is because the Girl Scouts of the United States of America encourages the ladies to go beyond their homes and develop themselves mentally, physically and spiritually for the good of their community.
