We deliver these programs in five W.A.G.G.G.S. Regions: AfricaArabAsia PacificEurope, and Western Hemisphere. We also hold advocacy and leadership events at our five World Centers: Our Chalet in Switzerland, Sangam in India, Pax Lodge in the UK, Our Cabaña in Mexico, and Kusafiri, our World Centre traveling around Africa. Through our global programs, girls from all over the world come together to learn new skills, share their international experiences, and form lifelong friendships.
