Role Of Girl Guides Association Should Be Reviewed -Rosmah | 28/02/2010
Untitled document KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 2010 (Bernama) --The Prime Minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wants the role of the Girl Guides Association to be reviewed to meet current needs and to ensure it remained relevant.

She said activities carried out the association should not only be meant for its members but to also give impact on the society.

"The association should outline its role and responsibilities to ensure it continues to be popular, relevant, fresh and respected as an association which contributes to the people's welfare and harmony," she said when launching the Malaysian Girl Guides Association World Thinking Day here Sunday.

Rosmah, who is the patron of the Malaysian Girl Guides Association, said the association should be rebranded and to think "out of the box" in finding ways to help young girls develop their potentials.

Referring to the theme of this year's Girl Guides' World Thinking Day, "Together We Can End Extreme Poverty and Hunger", she emphasized the importance of education as an escape from the vicious circle of poverty.

As such, she suggested that the association organised programmes like tuition classes, motivation classes and the 'mentor-mentee' programme.

"These efforts can help the association to produce credible and successful members," she added.

She said the association should also continue with programmes to increase its members, comprising all races, including from rural areas.

"I don't want the Malaysian Girl Guides Association to only have a certain race, but to involve all races in line with the concept of 1Malaysia," she added.
