The Antigua and Barbuda Girls’ Brigade is now under the patronage of H.E. Lady Williams, President and Founder of the Halo Foundation. Lady Williams was approached by the organization to assist with their programs following the retirement of former patron, Dr. Gloria Mason-Thomas.
Lady Williams was briefed on the status of this not-for-profit entity by Judy St. John-Edwards, President of the Antigua Girls’ Brigade Island Council. Her Excellency pledged to work along with the team in several areas, including the execution of their planned recruitment drive and the celebration of Girls’ Brigade Month (May 15 – June 15).
The Girls’ Brigade was founded in 1893, and is a uniformed body for girls aged 5 to 20 years. Its aim is “to help girls to become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and through self-control reverence and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life”.
