Standard Chartered created the “Goal“ programme in order to the issue that many of the more than 600 million girls who live in the developing world lack the opportunities and skills needed to reach their full potential.

Goal uses sports training and life skills education to empower young girls and teaches critical facts about health, communication, rights and managing their personal finances in order to help transform not just their own lives, but those of families, friends and future generations.

The Goal programme was launched in New Delhi in India in 2006, today, the programme runs in 18 different countries.

Goal is a global programme of Standard Chartered.
