Brownies in Purvis, Mississippi used the "A World of Girls" Leadership Journey to develop this wonderful Take Action project. The Journey helped them learn about how to spot a community need, connect with others (city council, cookie customers) and develop a sustainable plan. "A World of Girls" and the other two Brownie Leadership Journeys, "Brownie Quest" and "WOW! Wonders of Water," offer the same steps to doing projects that make the world a better place.
