Congratulations Deepali, Richa, and Nilofar!


It makes us proud that our coaches Deepali and Richa, and Goal participant Nilofar were awarded scholarships at a recent ceremony.

Nilofar had participated in the 53rd School National games from the 5th to 10th January, 2008 at Dhamtari(Chhattisgarh) as a part of the Delhi team and they has won the tournament playing the final against the team from Uttar Pradesh.

Deepali and Richa have been consistently excelling in Netball!! They both were recognised winning the Gold medal for the Delhi team at the Senior National tournament held in February 2008 at Bawana.

Keep up your good performance and may you continue to have such success in the future too!

Measuring our Impact

By now you've read about the personal, transformational impact Goal has on girls' lives. This year, we are focusing on quantifying that impact - trying to understand exactly what we do and how well we do it.

To that end, we've engaged the Population Council, an organisation responsible for measuring some of the best, most impactful programmes that work with adolescent girls. PopCouncil has worked with the Goal team to create a thorough programme evaluation. Last week, Standard Chartered employee volunteers in Delhi gave their time to be trained by Dr. KG Santhya on data collection, ethics, interview skills, and general research.

The collection of data will begin this month - we can't wait to share our results!
