Our Aim
The aim of The Girls’ Brigade is to help girls to become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and through reverence, self-control and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life.

History
GB Tanzania began on 10/6/2001 with the commissioning of 5 Companies and a total of 173 members. Naomi Ngururi was appointed as the first National Secretary.

  • In 2002 two new Companies were opened, bringing the total to 7.
  • In 2004 Naomi went to study in UK and Helen Hoskins was elected as the second National Secretary.
  • In 2004 10 new Companies were opened bringing the total to 17.
  • In 2005, 5 more Companies and in 2006, one more Company were opened so we now have a total of 23 Companies with over 600 members.
  • We are continuing to strengthen and build up these new Companies and to prepare them for Commissioning.

Weekly Meetings
All Companies meet on Saturday afternoons from 3.00 pm to 5.00 pm and follow our GB program. We have a 16 week syllabus for new Companies which prepares the girls for commissioning. We have produced five more syllabuses for ongoing programs.
All Companies sit for an end of year exam.
