Girl Guide Must Be Open-Minded To Remain Relevant - Rosmah | 28/11/2010
Untitled document

TAPAH, Nov 28 2010 (Bernama) -- Every member of the Girl Guide movement must have an open mind besides the ability to understand and handle changes by adapting to the environment in order to remain relevant, said the Prime Minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

Rosmah, who is also the President of the Malaysian Girl Guide Association, said the members must come out of their cocoon and move towards a paradigm shift.

"This calls for all members to change their attitude and mentality, from being reactive to proactive, from being a follower to a creator of the flow.

"In this context, the attitude that must be inculcated is an awareness for the Girl Guide Association to work as a team with government agencies and non-government organisations in implementing activities particularly involving the community," she said at the programme "Perak Girl Guides Meet the People' at the Lata Kinjang Orang Asli Settlement in Chenderiang, here Sunday.

She also reminded all Girl Guide Associations in the country to use Perak as a model in rebranding the movement.

Rosmah said she was proud that the Perak Girl Guide Association had realised that the movement had run out of social activities and started the programme to organise the 'Pandu Puteri Turun Padang' or Girl Guides Meet the People.

"I hope this programme will give the most positive and lasting impact within five years from now. Within that time, all weaknesses in the programme will be resolved so that a module could be created for use by the Orang Asli community in other villages in Perak particularly," she said.

The effectiveness of the programme must be evaluated at all times so that an improvement in the contents of the programme could be made from time to time, she said.

She reminded the members that this did not mean that such a programme should be replicated in every state because there was a possibility that some state associations could have better ideas and programmes in achieving the aspiration of the Girl Guide Association.

At the function, the Association also received contributions including from Yayasan Bina Upaya (RM30,000), Perbadanan Kemajuan Pertanian Perak (RM20,000) and Markas Maju Sdn Bhd (RM30,000) for the 'Pandu Puteri Turun Padang' programme.
