Coaches Across Continents teach on field Goal games around the world

In the past year, Coaches Across Continents has designed on field games for Be Yourself, Be Healthy, Be Empowered and Be Money Savvy Goal modules. Armed with these games, CAC coaches held workshop in Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Haiti, Tanzania and India, not only teaching sport for development coaches how to integrate Goal on field games with their current programmes but also engaging Standard Chartered Bank employees.

The Goal programme continues to prove itself an outstanding tool for empowering girls economically around the world. One example: Chhaya Gaikwad from the Naz Foundation in India. Chhaya joined the Goal programme with Naz in 2009 as an assistant coach. Shortly after, she was given the opportunity to join Standard Chartered as an intern in the Security Services department.
