The International Gathering 2017 PDF Print E-mail

Hello and welcome to the second mailing for the Gathering 2017 !

We are now just over 1 month away from the 2nd International Gathering of the Girls’ Brigade and it’s time to start getting excited!!


This monthly newsletter will be the planning team’s way of communicating with you, the delegates that will be coming to this awesome event and will be posted on our blog. We will also have a Facebook page so that you can start getting to know each other before next August. Search for ‘The Gathering 2017’.


To make sure that you get all the newsletters, please sign up to receive emails when a new blog is posted. The web address for the blog is


The team that is planning the event is made up of a representative from each Fellowship (Esther from Africa, Tracy from Asia, Safiya from C&A, Sam from Europe and Naomi from Pacific), as well as a representative from the Ghana ground team (Naa) and is led by me, the group coordinator (Chris, from Scotland).


Over the next few months, we will be sharing some information about our plans for the Gathering, finding out a bit more about the members of the planning team, and passing on some of the logistical information that you need to help prepare for the Gathering 2017.


At the moment, you should all be well underway with your fundraising and thinking about travel plans. We would love it if you shared some of your ideas and successes with us on Facebook.

Delegates should arrange travel to arrive in Accra on the 5th of August. Transport will be available from Kotoka International Airport (it takes about 45-60minutes to get from the airport to the conference centre) and informal activities are scheduled to start at 3pm on the Saturday.

The conference will close on the evening of Friday the 11th of August, and delegates should plan to leave on Saturday the 12th.


TOP TIP – Check that your passport will still be valid next August! Remember that it is difficult to travel if you have a short time left on your passport before it expires. (I will need to renew mine before next year!)


Possibility of arriving on Friday 4 August - extra accommodation charge will be $30-50USD. To be confirmed nearer the time. Email Naa ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) for more details.

We are really looking forward to meeting you all, online in the next few months, and in person in Accra.


Keep an eye on out for updates every month on the blog, and remember to SHINE!!
