TOPAZ Russian 2016 Challenge Badge
Can’t travel? Here’s your chance to take part in TOPAZ
In 2015 we launched TOPAZ, (Trefoil Overseas Partnership: Adventure with Zest!). We promised that everyone would be able to join in the project, whether or not they could travel. We are at the beginning of a series of partnerships in which we will be working with WAGGGS Associations across the world and this Challenge will involve you in finding out about Russia, and the Russian Association of Girl Scouts, our first partners. You can complete it as an individual or as part of your Guild programme.
The Russia Challenge Badge has been produced as a fund raiser for the Trefoil team going to Russia in October. The eight members will be working with RADS, the Russian Girls Scouts, to promote Guiding in several new cities in Russia. They’ll be taking practical resources with them to use in taster sessions for girls and young women. These include mini-pioneering equipment, craft materials and a parachute or two, so they’ll have plenty of luggage!
To take part in the Challenge, and earn your badge, members of all ages need to choose at least six challenges which you will find numbered in the “words” of the Challenge. When these have been completed there is an order form for the badges. We hope you enjoy learning about Russia.
