Sales of local Girl Scout cookies support service projects, such as funding an orphanage in the village of Mto wa Mbu in Tanzania.

Girl Scout cookies – whether you think of them as a treat, a tradition or a diet complication – fund many activities in which Girl Scouts are involved.

An important part of Scouting is gaining organizational and leadership skills, and increasing civic awareness through community service. One way to achieve this is through the Gold Award Project, a long-term, sustainable service project aimed at making a lasting impact. The award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouts.
