Moving the Goalposts (MTG) uses football to empower girls and young women. MTG brings girls together in a safe space where they can play football, organize their own activities, become leaders and where they can discuss issues that matter for girls growing up in Kilifi and Kwale County, Kenya. Football provides girls with opportunities to excel. Tunaweza (We can!) is their slogan.

 

MTG works with girls and young women between 9 and 25 years. Our interventions are: 

  • Football leagues that run every year between March and October, organized by MTG girls in fields in Kilifi and Kwale County and annual tournaments 
  • Leadership programme for girls in which MTG trains girls are trained in a range of leadership roles such as coaches, referees, field leaders etc 
  • Peer education on sexual reproductive health and rights, including individual and group counseling 
  • Working with communities, parents and stakeholders during MTG parents meeting and trainings and community events to increase the support for and improve the position of girls in the communities
  • Economic empowerment to build girls’ capacity to become self-sufficient through trainings, savings, educational support and career guidance.
