Uganda Hosts Goal Events Master Training
Women Win Goal programme partner BRAC in Uganda hosted a Goal Events Master Training for 13 coaches and project coordinators from Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Uganda and Zambia May 18 – 21st, 2015. These master trainers will return to their organisations and pass on the Goal Events Methodology, which uses play based games to deliver life skill messaging to adolescent girls in conjunction with the Goal Programme.
A huge highlight from the training was the peer learning and sharing happening throughout the four days. Participants shared best practices and approaches, challenges and obstacles they faced and brainstormed solutions together. One organisation, NOWSPAR (The National Organisation For Women in Sport Physical Activity and Recreation), having already delivered several Goal Events, was able to share their experiences and realities of implementing the methodology on the ground. Trainers from Vijana Amani Pamoja (VAP) Kenya, Moving the Goalposts (MTG) Kenya, KMG Ethiopia, BRAC Uganda and Youth Empowerment Foundation (YEF) Nigeria.
