A note from Jordan

We are so excited to have Right to Play as our implementing partner for Goal in Jordan. They understand the power of sport to effect change more than anyone and we are so happy that they are on board. And (you heard it here first!), we'll soon be working with them in China as well.

Johann Olav Koss,  the President and Chief Executive Officer of Right to Play International, had a message for our readers:

Right To Play is delighted to have been chosen as a delivery partner for Standard Chartered Bank’s Goal programmes in Jordan and China. Goal is a fantastic initiative that focuses on advancing female social, emotional and economic empowerment by harnessing the power of sport and play. Working with some of the most marginalised young people in the world, Goal also aims to enhance girls’ self-confidence and knowledge of key health and social issues. It’s focus and approach aligns perfectly with Right To Play’s own and we are very excited to be involved in the Goal programme over the next three years.
