“I want to appeal to all Ugandans, unhealthy all friends of Guiding and all people of good will, to join hands and ensure that this structure is not only built and completed in record time, but is also fully equipped and functional bearing in mind that the work of this Association is important in the nurturing and equipping of the girl child in Uganda with important life skills”, Mrs. Janet Museveni who is the Patron for the Uganda Girl Guides Association said.

She congratulated the Girl Guides’ leadership and all active members for ensuring that their Association remains relevant in addressing the needs of the young people in Uganda.

Mrs. Museveni spoke about the dangerous trend among female children of Uganda being exposed to sexual activity too early in life and as a result becoming pregnant before their bodies are mature enough to bear children, which she said is driving the current high maternal and newborn mortality rates in the country, infections including fistula and HIV and AIDs as well as discontinued education leading to poverty because of lack of skills.

“I believe that the Girl Guides Movement could become a worthy partner in training and sensitizing young girls and equipping them with skills and knowledge that would prevent them from becoming victims of circumstances that destroy their destinies and future”, she said.

She appealed to the Ministries of Health, Education and Labour and Social Development to recognize the value of the Girl Guide Movement as an active partner and enable them to do more than they are currently able to do to impart life skills, knowledge and good values to the young girls in the country.

Aporu called upon all head teachers and proprietors of different institutions to join the struggle for the good of the girl child by ensuring that Guiding prevails in their institutions.
