1.6 The Association believes that all girls and adults are to be respected regardless of their physical condition, race, religion or nationality. They can all join as members and participate in Guiding activities.
In order to encourage uniform members who have special needs in terms of their outfit while participating in Guiding activities, we provide the below guidelines for those members:

  • Members can raise an application for special outfit needs to their own Unit Guider.
  • The Unit Guider should take the necessity, simplicity, and unity factors into consideration when approving the application.
  • The Unit Guider then informs the District Commissioner in written form for record and future reference.
