GLOW WTD badge
You can also earn a digital World Thinking Day badge through GLOW (Global Learning Online for WAGGGS).
Create an account at http://glow.wagggs.org and enrol in the World Thinking Day course (available in 2014). Within this course you will be able to work through our WTD online learning materials, learning about World Thinking Day and education with interactive online activities; before joining international sharing forums. Completion of this course will earn you a digital badge which will be shown on your profile and can then downloaded and shared to show that you have taken part in this course.

Education is a basic human right and fundamental to the fight for human dignity and freedom. For 125 million children and 880 million adults, that right is violated every day.
Global statistics tell us how we are doing as a global community but not about the differences in education between or in countries. Information
in this activity pack and on the World Thinking Day website will give you the chance to learn more about education in your own country, while
earning your badge.

MDG2 are:
2.1 Net enrolment ratio in primary education
(What percentage of all primary school age children has actually enrolled in school?)
2.2 Proportion of pupils starting grade 1 who reach last grade of primary
(What percentages of the pupils starting primary school reach the last grade?)
2.3 Literacy rate of 15-24 year-olds, women and men
(How many young men and women aged 15-24 are able to read and write?)

We have designed a new World Thinking Day badge and a new pin for 2014. The badge and pin designs incorporate MDG 2.
Why not encourage your group members to get involved in World Thinking Day by giving them a badge when they complete activities? You
can earn your badge by focusing on education.
The World Thinking Day badge and pin are available from the WAGGGS online shop. Order your WTD merchandise now

Focus Countries
DON’ T Forget . ..
Celebration of the international nature of our Movement is an important part of World Thinking Day. This is a chance to learn about life for girls and young women in other countries and to explore the similarities and differences in the Girl
Guide and Girl Scout experience across the globe. Each year since 2010, World Thinking Day has featured five focus countries, one from each of our five regions.
Some members choose to learn about different countries, finding out about the nation and what life is like for a girl or young woman there. Others choose to research
more into the World Thinking Day theme in these five countries.

For 2014 we have identified five focus
countries:
• St Vincent and the Grenadines (Western Hemisphere Region)
• Egypt (Arab Region)
• Bangladesh (Asia Pacific Region)
• Armenia (Europe Region)
• Benin (Africa Region)

More information about the issue of education in these five countries, and about how Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are helping their communities to improve education, is available online.
