During August 12 members of Girlguiding Midlands travelled thousands of miles across the world for an unforgettable, girl-only adventure in Kenya. The once-in-a-lifetime trip will took place from Sunday 26th July till Tuesday 11th August.
The team took part in vital community development work supporting young women attending The Brainhouse Academy and accompanying them on Kenya’s first international camp.
Alexandra, a Leader with 184th Birmingham Guides said “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I have got to meet a fantastic group of women and girls that I would not have met if it were not for the trip. Being part of guiding has opened up new opportunities for me as I will achieve my International Licence through this trip, meaning I will be able to take more girls on international trips in the future. That was before they even left for Kenya!
The team raised funds ahead of their trip by bag packing, coffee mornings, busking and baking many cakes!
