The Sri Lanka Girl Guides Association (SLGGA, Lanka Baladhakshika Samajaya) (In Sinhala: ශ්‍රී ලංකා බාළදක්ෂිකා සංගමය, in Tamil:இலங்கைப் மகளீர் சாரணர்க் கழகம்) is the national Guiding organization of Sri Lanka. It serves 37,057 members (as at 01/01/2007) (23,133 in 2003 and 16,656 in 1999). Founded in 1917, the girls-only organization became a full member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1951.

Program and ideals[edit]

In the 1960s the image of Girl Guiding in Sri Lanka was changed to give it a local character. New Sri Lanka badges for all ranks in the three branches were introduced.

SLGGA is divided into three sections:

  • "Kuda Mithuriye" (Little Friend) aged 7–11
  • "Baladhakshika" (Guide) aged 11–16
  • "Jayeshta Baladhakshika" (Senior Guide) aged 16–23

Girl Guide Motto[edit]

Be Prepared

Girl Guide Promise[edit]

I promise on my honour to do my best:
To do my duty, to my Religion and Country,
To help other people at all times, and
To live by the Guide Law.

Girl Guide Law[edit]

  1. A Guide's honour is to be trusted.
  2. A Guide is loyal.
  3. A Guide's duty is to be useful and to help others.
  4. A Guide is a friend to all and a sister to every other Guide.
  5. A Guide is courteous.
  6. A Guide is a friend to animals.
  7. A Guide obeys orders.
  8. A Guide smiles and sings under all difficulties.
  9. A Guide is thrifty.
  10. A Guide is pure in thought, word and deed.

Overseas branches[edit]

An overseas branch of the Sri Lanka Girl Guides Association operates at the Sri Lankan School in Muscat, Oman.[1]

In 2009, Girl Guides at the Sri Lankan School in Muscat had their camp in October canceled to prevent the spread of Swine flu.[2] The Guides paper recycling project was also discontinued for the same reason.
