2013 World Thinking Day

Today (February 22) is World Thinking Day - a day when girls honor their sister Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world and celebrate being part of a global community through the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS).

This year, girls worldwide say "together we can save children's lives" through studying issues affecting children's lives. This is stated in the UN Millennium development goal #4 which focuses on reducing child mortality rates worldwide.

We read through all of the Cadette activities and discussed parts of each. We went more in depth with the study of malaria and the malaria net program, and also watched the video about the girls' education program Healthy Girls, Healthy Villages.

We also watched the Peace Corps volunteer informational video and I realized that I will have to wait until I am 18 to volunteer!
