Sharjah Girl Guides have taken part in a two-day boot camp, ‘Fakhrana’ (Our Pride), held under the theme, ‘Zayed the Leader’, in cooperation with Sharjah Police Headquarters. The programme targeted 50 guides and senior guides aged 12-18, who received the Guiding World badge upon its completion. The programme included interactive competitions and games, as well as specialised workshops, such as ‘Decision-making and Setting Goals’ to enhance the girls’ self-confidence, develop their leadership talents and prepare them to take on senior roles in later life.
The camp highlighted the value of self-discipline and independence through a routine of waking up early, cooking for themselves and attending educational lectures on a range of topics including honouring one’s parents, volunteering and selflessness in the community. The guides and senior guides also learned about the founding father of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, his visionary leadership, insightful principles and characteristics that made him such a visionary and influential leader.
