1st Luanda Brownies (in Angola)
We are the 1st Luanda Brownies from Angola, West
Africa. We formed in August 2014 and we just took our Promise before
the October break. This is a picture from the Promise after-party - we
played lots of games and ate party food.
The Promise party was for new brownies taking their promise and
existing Brownies, new to Luanda retaking their Promise. We had been
doing 6 weeks of work previously learning about the Brownie story,
what being a good Brownie involves and what the Promise means.
The girls decided in a pow wow they wanted to take their Promise
and then celebrate with an after-party. We meet outside every Monday
so the party involved games, singing songs and dancing.
All the brownies took party food to share on the night and mums and
dads were invited to stay and participate.
The Promise was done in their Sixes: first, the existing Brownies
did theirs together in a circle, and then new Brownies were brought up
by their Sixer to recite the Promise and then look into the mirror.
Party games included:

sugar in the photo! Also pictured is the 1st Luanda Guides - also
newly set up!
