There are presently eight functioning Girls Brigade Companies in St. Kitts. Over the years young girls have been trained to become meaningful and useful young ladies to the church, home and society. These teachings have so far produced ministers of religion, including Rev. Morna Christmas-Fraser, Rev. Stacia Williams-Christmas and Rev. Deslyn Belle-Watson, as well as several influential teachers and other workers in the church and civil society.
