Goal is an award-winning development programme which uses sport and life skills education to transform the lives of adolescent girls. Created by Standard Chartered, it is primarily designed for girls ages 12-18 who are living in underserved communities. Goal is typically offered on a weekly basis, over the course of ten months. The curriculum, designed by Standard Chartered in collaboration with the Population Council, is divided into four modules focused on one of four key life skills: communication, health and hygiene, rights and financial literacy.

Standard Chartered approached Women Win in 2011 to help expand and license the Goal curriculum globally. Through this innovative partnership, Women Win has been able to scale up the programme, provide the curriculum online for free through a creative commons license and develop a world class system of monitoring and evaluating the global impact of the curriculum.
