The large scale event has been carried out by the association’s members at all levels since it was launched in 2009. After 10 years, the project has successfully taught the members the culture of serving the Earth or working on the land and protecting the environment. The 10 years of the project was celebrated at the Girl Guides Association Headquarters in Kampung Anggerek Desa in Berakas yesterday afternoon.
