camp, educators hailed BP’s scouting
theories as a revolution in education methods;
a new way of character training.

1909 A Boy Scout rally took place at the


Crystal Palace in London. Lord BP took
the salute of 11,000 boys during the rally.
A group of girls calling themselves “Girl
Scouts” turned up during the event. BP
decided they needed a name of their own
and a program suited to their needs.
1910 The Girl Guides
Association was officially
founded with BP’s sister,
Agnes Baden Powell as
President.

the GSP at the famous tea party after her Girl Scout training
with GSUSA and observation tours in Europe.

May 26, 1940
The Girl Scouts of the
Philippines was
chartered under
Commonwealth Act
542 as a national
organization during
the administration of
President Manuel L.
Quezon.
March 22, 1941
The first National Girl Scout Rally held at the Manila
Grand Opera House drew more members to the
organization. About 3,000 members were registered in
1941 but all records were destroyed during World War II.
During World War II, Girl Scouts, under the leadership
of Josefa Llanes-Escoda helped Filipino and American
soldiers by bringing them food and other supplies,
conveying messages from their loved ones.

The heroic underground work of Josefa Llanes-


Escoda angered the Japanese, which led them to
her imprisonment and eventual death.
When Manila was liberated in
1945, Elvira Llanes informed
GSUSA of the tragic death of
Mrs. Escoda.

She requested GSUSA to help


reorganize the movement .
They responded promptly.
After the war, people’s
interest in Girl
Scouting grew.

Reorganizational
work was hurdled by
both volunteers and
staff.
September 1946

GSP was accepted as


a tenderfoot
member of
WAGGGS at the 11th
WAGGGS World
Conference in
France.
August 1948

GSP was accepted


as a full member of
WAGGGS at the
12th WAGGGS
World Conference

“You have proved yourself to be playing this fine game


of guiding and scouting just as well as the girls of all
the many other nations who are already members of
it.”
