Development of the movement:

Since its foundation in 1942, the Movement has not stopped existing and always tried to fulfil the aspirations of girls and young women.

Fanilo pays particular attention to female identity and a new profile of women that match with the needs of the church and the country.

Located throughout the island in the 21 dioceses (in parishes, schools and universities, towns and rural villages), the Movement is structured in Districts, groups and units which are directly in contact with girls.

The guideline of the Movement is defined every 5 years with a National Congress. Every two years, senior officials commissioners hold a general meeting for the activity report, discuss and define the activities to achieve. The national team directs and coordinates the decisions of the General Assembly and ensures facilitation, training and relation of the association.    


The Association's aim is to educate girls from 6 to 25 years, from urban and rural areas to lead them to become citizens, Christian, helpful and able to take control of their future. To also contribute to the development of girls and young women, their families and their communities by using the spirit of Guiding in the light of Christian education.

It is therefore an aim to developing each girl the sense of:

- Duty to herself: to enhance health, develop character, build a spirit of resourcefulness

- Duty to others through service, commitment to the community, Service to the Fatherland, the opening


Amongst the Association activities are: 

  • Camping, crafts, game
  • Community service
  • Training on Guiding animation in rural areas
  • Youth training: apprenticeship, technique in secretariat, sewing
  • Participation with pastoral in parishes: catechesis, religious activities.

National presence in the apostolate of laic, in the preparation of the synod, the Central Catholic Youth, the national secretariat of coordination.

At country level: implication in public life through participation in activities and national consultations on youth and in national life. Collaboration with other national associations, NGOs, ministries and institutions. Participation in various national days (wife, family, children...) and national campaigns (vaccination - food - environment...).
