The Olave Baden-Powell Society

The Olave Baden-Powell Society (OB-PS) supports the Mission of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS): to enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential as responsible citizens of the world.

OB-PS members invest in the future - future leadership by young women, who will lead their families, communities, countries and the world. 

These OB-PS individuals make an investment with a guaranteed return - funds support the work of international Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting worldwide, using a proven and established delivery network to get results.

The Society honours donors, and recognizes the value that these donations make in the lives of girls and young women all over the world.

The Olave Baden-Powell Society, formed in 1984, is named after Olave, Lady Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide who was so dedicated to the advancement of Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting around the world.

Olave Baden-Powell Bursary Fund - a Girlguiding UK fund

The Olave Baden-Powell Bursary Fund was set up in 1979 from voluntary contributions in memory of the late World Chief Guide, Olave Baden-Powell.  The purpose of the fund is to create a continuous living memorial to the World Chief Guide by helping girls further their hobbies and interests to help make a dream come true.

Bursaries are awarded annually. Guides, Rangers and Young Leaders between the ages of ten and 18 years old are invited each year through an article in the January edition of guiding magazine to complete an application form and read the information sheet.  Patrol/Senior Section group applications are welcomed and the Patrol Leader/nominated group leader should apply on behalf of the patrol/group.
