Troop 3480 Girls Earn My Promise, My Faith Pin

The Girl Scout My Promise, My Faith pins invites girls to experience a faith journey through exploration of the Girl Scout Law and teachings from their faith. Girls can earn this national pin each year. This journey into faith allows girls to both learn more about Islam and grow stronger in their deen. Though this award is national, each religious organization develops and administers its own program. These recognitions are worn on the front of a Girl Scout’s vest or smock.
