Becoming Superheroes for International Day of the Girl!

IGG members throughout Ireland are preparing for International Day of the Girl (11 October) by drawing their superheroes with special powers! These powers focus on the abilities, characteristics, powers and strengths of superheroes rather than their looks.

We’re inviting our members of all ages to send us photos of themselves with their superhero pictures to and to share them with us on social media using the hashtag #TeamGirl, #InternationalDayoftheGirl and #IDG2018.

You never know: the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) might share them too!

The superhero activity is just one in the International Day of the Girl pack available on the WAGGGS website. If you complete a certain number of activities, you can earn your #Teamgirl badge.

WAGGGS decided to focus on the power and potential of girls for International Day of the Girl 2018. We know girls are already powerful, but sometimes they need a helping hand to reach their fullest potential. That’s where Girl Guiding comes in!

We want all girls to be their own superheroes and use their powers to change the world for the better!
