Short description:
Girls and women in Kilifi District, Kenya are some of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people. Low retention in school, early and unwanted pregnancies and vulnerability to HIV/AIDS trap them in a cycle of poverty. Moving the Goalposts Kilifi (MTGK) uses local and youth centred approaches to tackle these issues ensuring girls’ participation as leaders and decision makers.

The project uses football to develop essential life skills
– confidence, leadership, self esteem
– of vulnerable young women. Football also provides a unique entry point for reproductive health, human rights and economic empowerment initiatives.
