Sangam, meaning ‘Coming Together’ in Sanskrit, was founded with the intent to unite Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from around the world. Since 1966, our World Centre in Pune, India, has been a place to grow, connect and have fun with one another.

past &present

On 16th October, 1966, Lady Baden-Powell declared Sangam open. Her vision was simple: “love through knowledge and understanding… carried out in full measure by the young people who will fill this place”. Girl Guides and Scouts have manifested this vision ever since.
