For three days, programme managers, coaches and facilitators convened to discuss and learn about Goal and best practices for implementing the programme in their communities.

Topics covered included Goal module and life skills overview, community engagement, Goal coaching techniques, role of sport in Goal and programme implementation. The group ended with mock sessions, in which participants practiced facilitating actual Goal sessions!

Participants in the training represented the organizations Moving the Goalposts (Kenya), Sadili Oval (Kenya), HODI (Kenya), VAP (Kenya), KMG (Ethiopia),  PolyCom (Kenya), NOWSPAR (Zambia), MIFUMI (Uganda), ICRW (India), and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (The Netherlands).
