Hundreds of thousands of people are forced to flee their homes every year due to conflict, persecution and environmental disaster. Refugees travel hundreds of kilometres to seek safety for themselves and their families—a total of 2 billion kilometres every year. We are bringing this fact to life by joining the #StepWithRefugees challenge.
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is joining the UN Refugee Agency to walk, run, cycle or swim 2 billion kilometres in solidarity with refugees. We are challenging Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to reach 1,000 kilometres for World Refugee Day (20 June). Girl Guides and Girl Scouts are global citizens—we are passionate about our wider responsibilities to society.
We are creating a safer and fairer world for all. Join us and sign up to the challenge in the form below!
