Goals for Girls
Globalteer has been providing access to sports and coaching to thousands of children in Siem Reap for over three years, including the creation of the first soccer league just for girls.
When children have access to sports of any type, they inherently learn things from playing, like team work and communication. Sport can also be a high-impact, low-cost tool for social change.
In Cambodia, access to organized sport is limited, and focus on girls in sport is even more limited. Girls and women are vital members in our communities, and research has shown that when you invest in girls, you invest in the society as a whole.
We are investing in girls by using the sport of soccer to deliver important life-skills, which are essential in helping girls face everyday challenges in Cambodia.
Goals for Girls is Globalteer’s sport for development initiative that brings together a group of girls, aged 16-19, for a series of leadership workshops on the soccer pitch.
Over the course of 6 months, these girls will use soccer as a tool to learn and discuss things like role models, leadership skills and the role of women in the community. It is our hope that these skills developed on the soccer field will translate into everyday life.
At the end of the course, the Goals for Girls team will help Globalteer manage and run an annual sporting event for 1,000 children, giving the girls real life experience of the skills they have learned on the field, like using their confidence and voice.
Our goal is to raise $5,000 to run safe, inclusive sessions that are delivered by a female, Khmer coach and to provide the necessary resources for engaging on the field sessions.
