Take part in the Hand of Friendship Badge                          or Project Friendship Pin

 

 

What does the Hand of Friendship Badge include?

 

The Badge includes activities that give girls a chance to understand how people in other countries experience life. It’s also a chance to find out more about volunteering in developing countries. 

For Pippins, Brownies and Guides, there are lots of different tasks to choose from, to help understand how life might be for people in other countries. These might be walking for 10 minutes carrying a bucket with some water in it on their head, or spending an hour in the evening with no electricity.

Walking with a bucket of water (PDF)

For many children getting a drink of water, brushing their teeth and washing is not as simple as turning on a tap. Often they collect water from a shared well or river. Walk for 10 minutes carrying a bucket with some water in it on your head.
