Alex from 16th and 30th Bath Rainbows took part in a Guiding Overseas Linked with Development (GOLD) trip to Rwanda over the summer.

She had an absolutely excellent time, sharing both resources and skills such as teamwork, leadership, first aid and marketing with Rwandan Girl Guides, local people, schools and nurseries.

Many of our girls and leaders helped Alex to fundraise for the trip by buying badges or keyrings, attending her quiz night, or inviting her to their unit to run sessions as part of ‘rent a leader’.

Here are a few of Alex’s photos from the trip. If you are inspired to apply for a GOLD adventure, visit the GOLD webpage on the Girlguiding website and look up Alex via the Bath Division Leaders group on Facebook and she’ll tell you more about why you should apply!
