Sport + education = economic empowerment
We’re celebrating 10 years of Goal
This week, Goal celebrates a decade of equipping girls with financial education, life and leadership skills. Follow us on Twitter (@GoalGirlsGlobal) to read about our success, and use #LeadershipGoal to join the conversation about why investing in the next generation of girls is so critical.
Across the developing world, millions of adolescent girls are at risk of missing out on education which severely limits their future prospects.
This affects not only the girl herself, but also her family and the education and employment opportunities of her children, with implications for the wider economy.
How we’re helping
Goal is our global programme aimed at empowering adolescent girls from low-income communities with the skills they need to make informed life choices and enable them to fulfil their potential.
Through a combination of sports and life skills training, Goal aims to empower and equip adolescent girls with the confidence, knowledge and skills they need to be integral economic leaders in their families, communities and societies.
Goal aims to reach 600,000 girls from 2006 to 2018. From 2006 to 2015, we’ve reached more than 217,000 girls across 25 markets.
Reaching more girls
We're helping to reach more girls by making our Goal curriculum available to organisations online.
