Thinking Day Bronze Award Project

On February 19, Fairmont Troop 30213 helped celebrate World Thinking Day with 145 Girl Scouts in their service unit. For their Bronze Award, as Girl Scout Juniors, they hosted a Thinking Day celebration and taught their peers about their sister Girl Guides in Swaziland, Africa, by performing a skit showing the differences between rural and urban life in the country.

They taught the girls about the customs of the Girl Guides in Swaziland. Then the Girl Scouts traveled through various stations so they could learn about the SiSwati language, foods, and crafts.

To give back to the country they had learned so much about, they asked the girls who attended to help them raise a mile of pennies. In the end, they raised just about 1/3 of a mile of pennies and were able to donate $250 for the Girl Guides of Swaziland.
