Juliette Low World Friendship Fund
Juliette Gordon Low believed that when girls travel the world, they
have an unparalleled opportunity to foster cultural understanding.
That's why the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund was formed in 1927
to support girls as they travel internationally, connect with sister
Girl Guides, and take action globally.
Donations to the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund support girls'
international travel and participation in training and other global
events. These unique opportunities for building international
friendships connect Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from nearly 150 nations.
