Description
May 10, 1996, marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Girl Scouts of Korea.

Girl Scouting was started under the name of the Girl Guides in Great Britain by Lord Robert Powell as part of a social movement dedicated to help girls become better citizens serving their community while developing their full potentiality. The organization was formalized with the creation of the Girl Gudes in 1910. When the movement spread to the United States, Girl Guides were called Girl Scouts. Today, both names are used worldwide with the same meaning. The first Girl Scout troop in Korea was formed in 1946 under the name of the Girl Scouts of Korea to provide guidance to future mothers and woman leaders on the principles of integrity and a sound society. Currently, the total membership numbers over 200,000 with sixteen provincial councils throughout the country.

The objects of Girl Scouts are geared toward diverse goals, such as the development of charater, leadership, creativitym, physical fitness, outdoor and domestic skills, as well as the fostering of international understanding, cooperation, and service. In addition, the Girl Scouts have expanded their interests to encompass environmental preservation. juvenile drug abuse, and assisting refugee children, in an effort to meet the demands of the times for the welfare of all humankind and world peace.
