"The first of four experimental Fifth World Centre pilot project events has taken place in Ghana, attended by 25 participants from eight African countries. Ghana Girl Guides Association hosted a Fund Development and Leadership Development training event from 21 to 27 July.
This was part of a larger ongoing pilot project to test the concept of a mobile World Centre in the Africa Region. The two-year pilot project will test whether WAGGGS could use Member Organizations’ existing training venues to deliver World Centre events.
The event in Ghana will be followed by subsequent Fifth World Centre pilot project events in South Africa (October 2012), Kenya (January to March 2013) and Rwanda (May 2013). The Fifth World Centre pilot project will last for two years overall. The pilot project findings will be presented at the 35th World Conference in Hong Kong in 2014".
